Labillardiere Peninsula 2017
Thursday 31 August 2017
It is amazing how, in the space of 10 years, the length of the walk and hills on the stretch of track along the west coast of Labillardiere Peninsula have been forgotten. Our memory was of a walk along a heathy scrubland to the beach at the pointy end opposite Partridge Island. As a consequence the tree covered hill, Mount Bleak, came as a surprise. Butlers Beach was longer than expected and the track along Great Taylors Bay became tiring. Nevertheless, we got around in 6 hours including lunch.

There is a fish farm in the bay and the constant irritating noise, possibly from a tug like boat, was a big negative. It doesn’t seem right that they are allowed close to the coast and it is hoped that one day soon they will all be forced to locate out in the ocean.
The walk is 18k and takes about 6 hours
