MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL – Northcliffe to Karta Burnu Hut

MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL – Northcliffe to Karta Burnu Hut

Leaving the ever popular Sid’s Camping, I first stop at the Hollowbut Cafe for a bacon 🥓 and egg 🍳 bap, and one for the journey too! You can’t have enough bacon and egg baps! The first 10 kms or so is rolling tar (road). Pleasant way to head off with a stable surface under foot. Then, I’m turning right, straight onto soft sand!  Sir Issac Newton’s third law of physics: for every action has an equal and opposite reaction! – Delightful rolling tar, soft 🏖️ sand! Selfie time on the River Road Bridge. As with any selfie, it takes forever…

MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL – Walpole to Northcliffe

MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL – Walpole to Northcliffe

After cajoling a few supplies at the local 🛒 IGA (supermarket) I head towards a hut that was closed on my North to South cycle due to an anticipated, large, prescribed-burn. Reached said hut by midday. Only after passing abeam and then noticing one almighty, large, Tiger Snake 🐍 Fortunately, it was as idle to observe me, as I was of it! Pretty much most snakes are like that, can’t be bothered and just slope out the way! But, from…

MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL – Albany to Walpole

MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL – Albany to Walpole

I’m back on the start line for the Munda Biddi Trail … again! I’d no plans to return and cycle 🚵‍♂️ the trail … again, but when you’re back in the UK for 10 months, the idea of fleeing back soon becomes a plausible dream! Last time it was ‘North to South’. What is the Munda Biddi Trail I arrive in Albany 🏛️  Pronounced ‘Albany’ in Australia but it’s pronounced ‘Allbany’ where I come from! Or it’s merely how I pronounce it! Anyway, confuses the b’jezuz out of the Aussies when I say ‘Allbany’! I’m dropped off in ‘Albany’ for early afternoon. The trail head starts at the old railway…

My Munda Biddi

My Munda Biddi

I could just summarise this trail in one word … AWESOME! OK TWO WORDS, BLOODY AWESOME! 💚 Not knowing what to expect, as I generally don’t research much for my journeys. Leaving it as a surprise 😮 I do though research the climate (wind direction🌬), along with the flora and fauna. But knowing what’s round the corner, defeats the object for me! As the trail is free  i.e. not paying for the use of the huts etc., I felt it only right…

MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL – Jinung Beigabup Hut to Walpole

MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL – Jinung Beigabup Hut to Walpole

The big story is my Exped inflatable mat has broke! Well, it started to de-laminate, which in sleeping terms: is broke! The nights will become more uncomfortable, as it will rapidly get worse. 😐 After two nights at Jinung Beigabup Hut, I descend towards the coast. First time I’ve seen the sea since leaving Perth, over three weeks ago. It’s not necessarily the distance I’ve covered: its just, I don’t rush! 😎 Part of the route followed a busy section…

MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL – Fernhook Falls to Jinung Beigabup Hut

Setting of with another glorious day: blue skies ☀ Off early, so flies scarce. If it’s going to be glorious, it’s going to be flies. You can’t have your cake and eat it here! Arriving in Walpole early afternoon. First, port of call: burger and chips! Walpole is a pleasant small town. Most tourists will pass through, as they’re generally heading onto Denmark or Albany. Good in my books! After spending too much time in the cafe, and with flies still…
