These Boots Were Made For Walking

Piccaninni Creek

Good footwear is essential on our tours. Looking after your feet imperative. A lot of the walking is done on uneven surfaces, rocky terrain, through water. Sturdy shoes which are nicely worn in is just the thing for the Kimberley. At the end of a long day it is also nice to get your feet out of the sweaty socks and let them air out in some sandles ( walking sandles with a heavy duty sole and secure strapping which keeps the shoe secure on the foot).

Purnululu hiking

There is quite a lot of opportunities for swimming on our tours. The Gorges tend to have a rocky base and some guests like to wear reef shoes when swimming and walking in and out of the water.

Tunnel Creek

The reef shoes are especially useful in Tunnel Creek. The shoes also dry out quickly.

Galvin’s Gorge

The swimming is also wonderful for cooling down and giving your feet a fantastic rest after a long walk.

Fun at Lake Argyle

Looking after your feet is a key goal on a hiking holiday. Spend some time making sure that your shoes are nice and comfortable  and give your feet plenty of support. It is also a good investment to bring an ankle strap just in case a rolled ankle occurs. Bring an ankle strap that fits your sized ankle. Let us hope that it goes home with you unused – but better safe than sorry. A personal first aid kit is also a necessity but I might have a chat about those next week.

Chat again soon xx
