Place of Bad Smells is now behind E2E5 walkers

End to End 5

Sunday 18 July walk from Tapanappa to Balquhidder, complete with ‘that hill’, was attended by approx. 45 walkers. After an early morning light drizzle, the weather was fine until a shower fell mid afternoon as we approached the protection of waiting cars. The rain served only to reduce the numbers taking advantage of the after-walk celebrations and to remind a few walkers that rain coats are actually a good idea.

Lunch in the sun about half way along Tunkalilla Beach was a joy and provided fortification for climbing ‘that hill’ which, if it has no name, ought to be called ‘The Pinchgut’. Despite the required physical effort, not a single whinge was heard from the group. Well done everyone!

Did you know that Tunkalilla Creek apparently got its name from offal from the whaling station at Encounter Bay finding its way into the creek. Tunkalilla is a corruption of an Aboriginal word meaning ‘place of bad smells’.

See all E2E5’s at next month’s walk.

On Sat 2rd July the E2E3âs walked 23k over Mt Remarkable to Alligator Gorge Road, noted as the 2nd most difficult day walk on the Trail. Over 70 celebrated arriving safely after 8hrs of ups and downs. A chilly 7am Melrose start gave us the sunâs warm glow and first rays as we trekked up My Remarkable. A lovely sunny day provided wonderful views of this Remarkable country, so green, with the cool air making walking enjoyable. Sunday John Potter completed his 1,200km trek with the Murray Town to Melrose 16k leg. All joined in with John to celebrate. John walked with E2E3, E2E2 and E2E4 weekend walks to complete the trail in 3 years. Congratulations John.
