If you haven’t done so already, check out our Great South West Walk hiking trail summary or go back to GSWW Section 13 – The Springs Camp to Trewalla Camp. Else, let us continue on with this fourteenth section of the Great South West Walk from Trewalla Camp to Mallee Camp.
I loved these coastal sections of the Great South West Walk, although on occasion I was rather concerned about my wellbeing, being so close to the edge of the cliff along the way. In fact there are some points on the trail where it has been diverted to a more inland route, because the original trail has fallen off the edge of the cliff. I think my worries in this case were then justified.
So there is a cafe at Cape Nelson Lightstation. Make sure you get there on time! They stop serving food at 2:30pm. They also have alcohol here – enjoy a cold one. Eat more food. Eat lots of food. Foooood. There is also a guided tour available at Cape Nelson Lightstation. It costs about $15 per adult. I cannot comment on it’s value, however quite a few people were doing it.
Mallee Camp is an overnight walkers camp in Cape Nelson State Park set amongst Moonah and heathland. The site is a FUEL STOVE ONLY area and has raised camping pads for tents. The campsite offers shared shelter, seasonal tank water treat before drinking) and toilet.[adinserter block=”5″]
