Hike2Camp made this whole experience very special. Can highly recommend Wilson and his team who looked after us all the way. Everything was provided, the walk was spectacular and saw so much Aussie wildlife.

We were on a tour by car of the road so only managed to do a small section of the walk for an hour, but even that was amazing. I’d love to come back to complete the full 7 day walk.
