228-Great Ocean Walk; Interviews from the trail-part 1

Show notes

This is the first of two planned ‘on trail’ episodes from our recent 100km Great Ocean Walk in southern Victoria. In this episode we bring you a series of recordings from the first half of the trip with the second half of the trip in episode 229. Episode 230 will then discuss reality vs our expectation and make recommendations based on what we found on trail to help plan your adventure.
