About The Author

Julian Day

Julian lives in Drummoyne NSW and is actively involved in the local community. His passion for walking and enjoying the beautiful NSW coast is unparalleled. Julian survived cancer 3 times as a child and only 6 years ago a tumour in his left ear leaving him deaf on that side. He has “put back” to many charities for kids with cancer. He is founder of Waterline Challenge, a national charitable event to challenge the whole of Australia to walk, run, cycle, canoe, kayak, row or sail the entire waterline of Australia in one weekend and raise millions of dollars for charity, water quality and environmental projects. Julian is also co-author of the book “ONE ONE FIVE” released in 2011 about his defence against a serial litigant which ended up in over 10 years of litigation and 200 court appearances in all jurisdictions.

Read all of those great reviews

The book is incredible - there is no doubt about it. Those who read it know it already. Read just some of the awesome reviews that are all over the web.

  • The book is a fascinating read.  I felt every pain and anticipated every discomfort. Boy would I not do well with such challenges?  Would have enjoyed the fantastic hospitality and joyous proud moments!

    - Len Norman
  • I learnt so much about the coast and the places you’ve been and people you’ve met. Your resolve has been outstanding.

    - Robbo, Drummoyne
  • Life's a beach, mate. Inspired by your book and journey, I have just returned from a stroll on MY beach. Thanks to your book, striving to be more in the moment and place, soaking up the dynamic nature of this environment - savouring each view, smell and sound. I wondered about your footsteps long washed away and turned to see mine to vanish without a trace. Thank you for sharing your quest, journey and story.

  • Congrats Julian, on achieving an amazing journey. Kept me engrossed at every step!

  • Congratulations Julian on this wonderful feet of endurance. I did not know you had bone cancer as a child and had a tumour in your left ear. Scouting has been a backbone to your achievements and you have persevered raising a lot of money for charity. Well done!

  • WOW… What an adventure, with a Good cause to boot. This book reminded me of my bushwalking days in Scouting, with wonderful scenery at every turn, back to the sights and sounds of nature. The determination in all sorts of weather and situations thrown at you, great encounters with concerned locals and the true spirit of volunteer groups assisting at all times makes inspiring reading.

    - Peter Dixon
  • The book bought back fond memories of my childhood and more recent times. I grew up on the northern beaches and spent many happy times on those beautiful beaches that Julian described so vividly.  The childhood memories (and experiences as a teenage surf lifesaver) are so strong that his descriptions brought back the smells of the sand and surf. We are fortunate to live in a very special country.  Thanks Julian; for bringing this fact so starkly back to the reader - in a truly unique and personal style.  I hope that many others will be inspired by your book to enjoy what you and I have experienced all our life - and its free.

  • Being an experienced but amateur bushwalker myself, your story is very inspiring offering an alternative path of beach walks. I also enjoyed your frank admission of the benefits of a beer at the end of a walk. A nice easy read.

Walking on a BOB or TWO Walking the Entire Coast of NSW

“Walking on a BOB or TWO” is Julian’s account of his many walks along the picturesque NSW Coast, keeping as close as he can to the waters edge on every beach and over every headland. Over 1600km at an average of 36km a day, he has many stories to tell of people that have helped him out and incidents that have happened along the way. Some serious and some very amusing. Each walk of up to 6 days takes time to research and prepare. He has had many lifts across water from Surf Clubs in their Rubber Duckies and Volunteer Coastal Rescue teams plus some from everyday folk who just come out to support him. He has also swam several creeks and small rivers pushing his 35kg rucksack ahead of him! A cancer survivor, Julian has raised many thousands of dollars for charity. The book encapsulates his inner being, his life and ambitions. It’s about his grit and friendships he’s made along his journey. From ants at dawn to blisters to the bone, this book has it all.
