Incredible, but demanding walk. Check an elevation profile before taking this on. I walked this from Bundeena to Otford, and would recommend doing this. The shorter second day leaves for some flexibility. A number of wallabies were sighted along the trail, and a handful of creeks are along the trail for those with water filters. Rewarding hike, although it's entirety is not for the unmotivated.
