Dwellingup to Collie

Length - 128km

Campsites - 6

Time - 5-7 days

Date Hiked - June 2018

With plans made to complete my sectional end to end over the summer, this section was a favourite to complete early on as it is one I already familiar with being a maintenance volunteer for two sections (Murray Campsite and between Possum Springs and Yourdamung). With some of the lushest Jarrah forest in the state, the hike from Dwellingup  going south is a delight and although there are intrusions on your wilderness experience here and there, the walk to Collie offers up a good amount of variety and wonder as you travel through a variety of landscapes in different conditions.
