A very rewarding walk. I've posted a full report of our experience here for anyone interested:

Great walk. Very hard up Battleship spur with 17kg on ones back. Trail gets a little astray at times. Good map reading and attention to marker arrows essential.

I loved this hike. I did it as a 4 day hike-I did section 1 on day 1, 2 on day 2 then sections 3 and 4 on day 3, sections 5 & 6 on day 4.

Definitely do the side Tracks the first day.

The climb up Battleship Spur on day 2 is challenging with a full pack. I'd think it would be brutal in hit weather-there isn't a lot of shade on much of the trail.

I saw emus and a lot of wild pigs.

The trail was very overgrown and hard to follow at times in the last section but it's otherwise very well defined.

Not a bad effort for a first attempt at a multi-day walk.

Very challenging, but remote, and very beautiful.
