A jaunty POV on travel, living abroad in Australia, SCUBA diving and food.
Bushwalking The Coast Track from Otford to Bundeena in One Day
Together with 30 awesome and inspiring peeps from CrossFit Ignite, we walked 28KMs (17.3 miles) from Otford to Bundeena via the Coast Track in Royal National Park. It took nearly 8 hours, it was a stunningly gorgeous day and it was straight-up the longest I have ever continuously walked in my life. The hilarious thing is that the NSW National Park site very clearly says “You can tackle it in sections, or, if you’re super-fit, in a single day.” So I pretty much demand that everyone refer to me as ‘super-fit’ from now because the Internet says it’s true. (Not kidding, I typed that while eating a Golden Gaytime.)
Saturday 25 June 2016: Here’s what went down! We started off in the Sydney CBD at 645am, caught a bus down to Helensburg and another bus to Otford and were merrily on the trail just before 9am. From there, it was a visual feast.
So there you go. 28KMs of hiking over 8 hours. It was an unforgettable day filled with incredible views of the NSW coast. And you better believe that every single spasm of ankle pain, calf soreness and leg tension was worth it. Can’t wait to do it all over again! Eventually. Like, a while from now. Maybe 2017 or so. Raincheck – 2018? 😉
