the Bicentenial National Trail runs pretty much all the way up the east coast of australia.

well, would this be feasible? it is 5330 km long, that is 3312 miles, a bit longer than the AT. various sites say it would take a year to complete.

any aussies out there?

Great movie. When the young aboriginie danced himself to death I almost wanted to sleep with the poor bugger myself. I said almost.
Not sure if I could do 3300 miles though. Looked pretty rugged.

Memorable Quotes:
--------------------------------------------------------------

The Girl: Please try. It's silly to give in now. It can't be much further.

--------------------------------------------------------------

White Boy: Well, where are we now?

--------------------------------------------------------------

White Boy: I don't suppose it matters which way we go.
The Girl: We'll stay here. Perhaps the water will come back.
White Boy: Where from?

--------------------------------------------------------------

The Girl: I expect we're the first white people he's seen.

--------------------------------------------------------------

The Girl: We're English! English, do you understand? This is Australia, yes? Where is Adelaide?
White Boy: Ask him for water!

--------------------------------------------------------------

The Girl: Water. Drink. We want water to drink. You must understand! Anyone can understand that. We want to drink. I can't make it any simpler. Water. To drink. The water hole has dried up. Where do they keep the water?

--------------------------------------------------------------

The Girl: Put your shirt on.
White Boy: He hasn't got his shirt on!
The Girl: He hasn't got a shirt.
White Boy: He can have mine.
The Girl: It wouldn't fit him.
