    T’s been a simple matter of putting one foot in front of the other.

    It’s just that Dutchman Anton Nootenboom has been putting one bare foot in front of the next all the way from Cairns.

    He left Cairns on foot in May, and in the next few days he will reach the Nambucca Valley, on his way to Sydney in a world record barefoot trek.

    Anton has already beaten the world record for a barefoot walk when he passed through the Gold Coast but the full trip from Cairns to Sydney will set a record that will be very hard to beat for anyone brave enough to follow in his footsteps.

    With feet worn down by concrete like sandpaper and bruised by stones, this epic journey is no race, rather a slow and steady effort that sees Anton walking with no set stops other than the final destination, his adopted hometown of Sydney, 2,600 km’s from his starting point.

    This isn’t Anton’s first barefoot trek either.

    In 2019 he was the first person to walk barefoot to the Mt Everest Base Camp.
