Stepping outside of Western Australian I have also completed and end-to-end bushwalk of the Larapinta Trail, Northern Territory July 2005.  That bushwalk is written up at the link provided and I have also posted a review of John and Monica Chapman’s guidebook of the Trail, Larapinta Trail.

I was also involved in gear testing with BackpackGearTest.org. My postings of hiking gear tests can be found by clicking here.
