For those with time constraints this is an excellent ‘getaway breath of fresh air’ option, doing a 22km loop, and is suitable for children as there aren’t any major ups and downs!
Personal equipment such as toilet gear (including insect repellent, sun block, basic first aid kit for blisters and other minor ailments); torch; sunglasses; camera; and towel are strongly recommended.
Sufficient food for 2 or 3 days with plenty of nutritional snacks for during the walk. The huts are fully equipped with cooking utensils and gas top elements (no ovens). There are no fridges.
Optional extras could include: walking sticks/poles; gaiters; long johns.
As well as our mandatory gear list you will need to have a reasonable level of fitness as the track takes in a variety of grades from easy terrain to uneven ground to steeper up-hill and down-hill sections.
Pack transport is included in the walk price. A ‘pack’ is a standard tramper’s back-pack. Groups of 4 or more are welcome to bring one chilly-bin (esky) for their food, at no extra cost.
Any extra chilly-bins or bags will incur a charge of $10 per item.
This walk was a fabulous way to get away from the hurly burly of work! The tracks were well marked, the huts were wonderful – basic but with comfy beds and the total luxury of hot showers and flush loos! Also well written history on each place. The beautiful scenery and peace of the whole station makes this an amazing experience
We did this walk some time ago now and I have meant to write something ever since. We really enjoyed the walk, and the cabins were divine! So cute. The self service bar was a godsend as well. We both had a bath and watched the sunset. Would recommend this walk.
