Let someone know before you go

It’s a good idea to let someone know where you’re going. Fill in a trip intention form to send important details about your trip to your emergency contact. If you are lost or require help and have phone reception, call 000 and ask for police. The international standard emergency number is 112, if you dial this number in Australia you will be treated exactly the same as a 000 call. If you believe your life is at risk, activate your personal locator beacon (PLB), then make your position visible to rescue teams and keep warm and dry.

Overall rating
  • Absolutely loved this section of the walk. Started with cliff top walking but soon changed to trails through beautiful bush land.

    I fancy myself a bit of a photographer and was slowed down by all the photo opportunities. The area is a haven for orchids, one of my favourite things to hunt and find, so the there were times when the pace got really slow, as I mooched around looking for these tiny flowers.

    The punt crossing was easy and a bit of fun and with a seat right next to the punt it was also a good place to stop for lunch. The side trip to Hanson Bay was short and well worth it, although we opted not to walk along the beach, instead just admired the view from the sand dunes.
