Eurobodalla shows its hospitality to long distance walker Bailey Seamer

Bailey Seamer - As Bailey Seamer sets out from Sth Durras to move onto the Shoalhaven she leaves the Eurobodalla with an appreciation of those who have reached out and spent time saying hello and learning more of her epic quest. Bailey Seamer began her year’s journey Trekking over 5000km along the entire east coast of Australia on May 16th, 2022.

The trek started at the most southern point of Australia at Wilsons Promontory to then traverse along the eastern coastline of three states and finishing at the most northern tip of Cape York Peninsula in Queensland.

This large-scale trek is motivated to join the growing movement and conversations around mental health awareness, with the intention of raising funds for the Black Dog Institute and their ongoing commitment to research, resources, and services.

Bailey said "My ambitious goal of walking the East Coast of Australia stems from my own personal journey living with bipolar disorder. Through adaptation, management and substantial amount of love and support, I have developed tools for mental health with hiking & connecting with nature being a major component. "Coupled with a strong desire to provide all I can to others I intend to explore what mental health support resources are available and accessible to people along the east coast of Australia and advocate for people to access supports and treatments.

"My dream is to raise awareness through community engagement along the eastern seaboard while encouraging an open attitude surrounding mental health and combating stigma. I also hope for future generations to inherit better societal acceptance, treatments, and management for years to come.

Bailey is in the Eurobodalla and has been enjoying Tuross Head. As of yesterday she has walked over 800km.

Bailey will be in the region for the next week or so before heading north. If you are interested in donating to the Black Dog Institute or sponsoring me personally, information can be found on the website or the link below
