Fantastic trail. Well signposted and marked all along the way. It is possible to just do smaller sections. Plenty of secure parking at each section starting point. Each section is clearly marked with distance, gradient and skill level clearly displayed. Paths are well maintained.

Trip was marred by weak guides and poor facilities. Eco camps need to be better quality for the price charged. Such a shame as this could be an outstanding experience. Amazing sunsets, great landscapes and colours. Mount Sonder at sunrise is a must do. Had...More

Yes, you can get water but not necessarily tank water, we took a filter and used water from Billabongs. But tank water is available most days
