Run the Whitsundays Great Walk 2014
The Whitsunday Great Walk takes you on a 28km journey through Conway State Forest, starting at Brandy Creek, and finishing at Airlie Beach. Designed as a 3-day hike, there are camping facilities, toilets and water at strategic locations along the track. Highlights of the Whitsunday Great Walk include wandering through majestic tropical rainforest, relaxing by seasonal creeks, and looking beyond coastal townships to the Whitsunday Islands.
Experienced long distance runners can complete the Whitsunday Great Walk comfortably within the six hour cut off. With plenty of time left over for swimming in the Airlie Beach Lagoon or drinking and dining at the many fine establishments in Airlie township. It is a demanding course with many steep uphill sections. Running time will be approximately 1.5 times longer than a flat 28km. Add extra time for checking out the views from the lookouts.
