I did this hike in summer toward the end of January but I would recommend to do it at a cooler time of the year as there is not many shaded section. The path is very flat however it is very sandy and can be hard to walk on. There are several sections of 4 wheel drive tracks that we follow as part of this trail which could make some sections of the trail a bit boring.
There are bush toilets, picnic tables and a hut for overnight sleepers half way through which is quite handy for a lunch break.

I found it hard to find the trail at the start but once I passed Crystal cave it was very well marked and easy to follow.
