    “Great South Coast Walk” is a tentative working name for this walk. While it is has a nice ring to it, it could be confused with the South Coast Track in Tasmania and the Great South West Walk in Victoria. Also, the epithet “great” has been pretty much flogged to death in walk titles – and many of them are not so great.

    I was originally hoping to find a name that reflected the aboriginal heritage of the region, but the walk passes through three language areas and 12 different cultural groups. My advice from local Land councils and people who know the language is that it might be difficult to find a name acceptable to all. The people I consulted are having a think about this.

    In the meanwhile, any sensible ideas for a name?
