ECHO Walking Festival

2019 Photo Competition

Each year we encourage walkers to take their phones or cameras with them and capture the beauty of the bush, the people participating and the spirit of ECHO.


Must be a registered walker; no more than 5 entries per person; fun not a professional photographer.

This year there is a People's Choice option to vote for a favourite photo(s) taken. These photos will be on the Echo Walking Festival Facebook page to vote on.
