I absolutely loved the walk . I had no expectations as it was my first walk with AW but it was so good in every way. The accommodation was great , the food was excellent ,the guides were wonderful and so caring .

I can't think of any way it could be improved , except maybe having another place to stay in between the swan valley and New Norcia ,as it was a long drive back the last couple of days .

A great walk on a beautiful day with some really lovely ladies. Being in the middle of Sydney, this walk was easy to access and provided some stunning riverside scenery. Deb was a great guide who pointed out some interesting historical points along the way.
