The sights from the track are worth the sore feet at the end of the day. Wilsons organised everything for us, from taking our packs to the next stop to preparing the meals at the stop. Their beds at the stops are great.

Go in the morning for less traffic. We walked the portion of the track from Torrent Bay to Bark Bay, in that direction. You cross the suspension bridge, a highlight of the track. It's a lovely, shady walk punctuated by ocean views.

Water taxi options to shorten the trip and options to camp or stay in lodge were wonderful. We enjoyed kayaking and hiking and tidal crossings. Wonderful time.
