Do you live on the route?
It will be cooold in June in the places Mark is going! If any kind soul that lives along the route that Mark is following would like to accommodate Mark for a night during the walk, please contact Mark.
Fancy a stroll?
I am more than happy to have people join me for a day or two as I walk. If you feel like a day's walk through the  countryside, check out the route, pick a day that suits you and contact Mark.


The Route and Itinerary

This map represents the approximate route I will be following (the yellow line).
Click on the map for a more detailed version.


The approximate route I will be taking is as follows:

Sydney - Royal National Park - Wollongong - Moss Vale - Goulburn - Tarago - Queanbeyan - Cooma - Jindabyne - Kosciusko

I plan to walk about 30 km (18 miles) per day.  I have laid out a draft itinerary below, showing the towns I will be stopping in each night.

If anyone reading this page can offer accommodations in the towns listed below on the dates given, it would be greatly appreciated.  It would not only give me a warm bed to sleep in and a place to shower, but it would also reduce my own personal expenses on the walk.  Please contact me if you can help in this way.  (Also, please understand that these dates can change, by as much as five days either way).

Please also note that these dates have been updated after the original posting.
