240-South Coast Track; Interviews from the trail-part 1

Show notes

In this episode we bring you a series of on-trail recordings as well as some interviews with other hikers from Tim’s 2022 journey on the Tasmanian based, 85 km South Coast Track. This episode contains a series of recordings from the first half of the trip with next week’s episode bringing you the second half of the trip in episode 241.

Episode 242 will then discuss reality versus expectations and make recommendations based on what we found on trail to help plan your adventure. In addition, the write up of this trail will be released very shortly (prior to 28 December 2022).
