Another review above mentions hiking in a counter-clockwise direction--with the aim of saving the best sites for last. WELL, we just completed this hike in Nov2019, and I can say, I am a healthy fit individual, but I recommend doing the hike in the standard Clockwise fashion. Going Counterclockwise means that you will be climbing UPHILL for extremely long stretches toward the middle and end of the walk--across boulders and tough terrain. Im not a world class hiker, but it seemed VERY challenging to do it this way. If you go Clockwise, you'll encounter long uphill climbs at the outset, but on milder terrain, and you'll be going downhill for some of the toughest sections. Also, separate note: If you come to the junction for the Platypus Path, and are facing the divided path, the sign is somewhat confusing as to which side is the path, and which is the PP. The PP is a dead-end vista, but is also a long downhill climb. It is the LEFT HAND path. If you want to avoid a down-up dead end, take the right hand main path, and save 30-40 minutes.

Yes, I had to google it, haha. This was a surprise - we went to Mount Field to walk around the lake at the bottom and go to some falls, but we saw a sign that said 'Alpine Hiking'. We followed the track to the 'Tarn Shelf' and it was stunning. There was still snow on the ground, but there is a wooden platform/track for most of those sections. The views along the way were absolutely breathtaking. I hadn't heard about this place before but were so happy that we stumbled across it. If you like a decent hike, skip some of the smaller ones and do this walk - you won't regret it.
