Started 11 October, North to south in 4 nights (Nina bay, banksia bay, Zoe and Mulligan). Very easy walking, I'd rate Zoe to Mulligan as moderate but everything else easy. Mosquitoes are fierce despite deet, long sleeves and coils! we were packed up, walking by about 7:30 and generally arrived at next camp by 10 each day. in contrast to previous reviews heaps of water at the northern end - just have to find the creek bed and head uphill like 20-30m. Beautiful streams full of freshwater prawns ready for a pedicure!

Amazing hike. 7days. Hiking with tent. Water tanks are pretty far from each other. Didn’t always make it to camp to found a few good stops to sleep. Actually hiked 159.5km due to the winter detours in place.

Completed 07/10/2020 North to South. Broke it down into multiple days to fully enjoy Zoe and Mulligan Falls. My only complaint is I was told the water was plentiful the entire way which wasn't the case on the first two days. Most creeks were dry up until Zoe Bay. So plan accordingly would be my advice. Also, the insects are hellacious. March flies, midges and mozzies. In case you're unaware, March flies and midges are attracted to darker colored clothing. I had mostly black on and I couldn't keep them away. Aeroguard does NOT work nor does most natural repellents. As much as I hate using DEET it's probably your best bet. I also recommend taking some coils for camp. Other than that, it's a lovely hike. Take your time if you can. There's plenty of swimming spots after Zoe. Take advantage and have a good time!

HikingIcyMuddySnowWashed out

Track was very wet this time of year. Some areas need work due to this as in numerous spots the vegetation is getting trampled in order to avoid being deep in mud/water. Markers were easily visible across alpine ranges and navigating in snow easy enough.

Gorge and Battleship Spur were fantastic. 9 Emus at saddle near Battleship Spur. Last 25km fairly sparsely treed with lots of grass - quite warm.

Stunning. Beautiful coastline, cliff tops and forest. For the second time in five years we did it as 6 day hikes, driving in and out each day.

First to Review

A beautiful hike I did on my own over 6 nights (two nights at Lake Mackenzie). For the really fit you could probably do it over 3 days but I wanted to take my time as the island is so beautiful and have time for swimming and chilling at the many lakes. Not a difficult hike at all, the trail is well marked, I dropped a star in my rating because there are a lot of trees down across the track and it is in need of some maintenance with some chainsaws which could easily be done by a crew over 3 days. A woman went missing while I was hiking (luckily she made her way East to the coast after 3 nights alone with no gear in the thick scrub), reminding us all that safe practices are a must (be aware of your surroundings and where the track is if you go off for any reason, carry a topo map, compass, PLB and let people know your itinerary), there is very little phone reception on the island so don't rely on this for contacting people. My topo map and the All Trails map served me well for checking where I was, terrain and distances remaining etc.  The camp sites are great with dingo-safe storage for food and are well maintained. Central Station has hot showers and takes $2 coins only which was a little luxury along the way.  Saw lots of pythons, bush rats tried to nibble into the tent at a few sites through the night, and while I saw no dingos on the trail, there were plenty on the coast and just beautiful to see. All up a great hike :)
