West Coast NP

Unread post by lucbo »

We visited West Coast NP and were a bit disappointed. First, the Geelbek restaurant is no longer operating and this is not mentioned on the website. Second, the 7 km hike was not well sign-posted. We lost track and had to walk back the same route, although it was indicated as a circular route, and so we walked considerably more kilometers than expected. We then found several signposts that were rotten, broken off and lying in the vegetation. When we wanted to report this at the Geelbek visitor centre, the lady at the counter was totally uninterested and didn't care to interrupt the personal telephone conversation she was having. The whole centre gave a derelict impression. We are not used to that, having visited many national parks maintained by Sanparks and which gave us always a very good impression. West Coast NP deserves better.
