« Photos | Lobster Beach to Box Head and Tallows Beach
20th January, 2008
Our mission: to walk/climb from Lobster Beach to Box head via the rocks. Had anyone ever done it before? We couldn't know for sure, but we wanted to know if it could be done!
This is undoubtedly the toughest mission we've ever taken on. We had to climb cliffs, swim in the ocean fully clothed, carve our way through thick scrub, avoid the spiders and snakes and sharks and octopuses, and keep from dehydrating in the incredibly hot conditions. All this took about 8 hours, and pretty much wrecked us all. We finished the day off by body surfing at Tallow's Beach in 2-3ft swell, and we had McDonalds as a late dinner :)
NOTE: I came less than 30cm away from treading on an Eastern Brown Snake, the second deadliest snake in the world... and even though I have a snake-bite kit in my backpack, I still got a nice scare.
