“This walk goes deep into Queensland’s tropical wilderness, and the scenery is stunning,” explains Peter Everitt. “It’s definitely for more adventurous hikers, but the setting makes up for any blisters!” Although you can cover the 32 kilometres in four days, may we suggest you linger for seven. Only 40 walkers are allowed on the trail at any one time, and you’ll want to make the most of your permission to be here, sleeping in campsites near pristine beaches or beside magnificent mountain waterfalls… Plus, since you’re bringing all your equipment (nifty little camp stoves, lightweight weatherproof tents) you’ll want to give it a good run.
