Nice easy walk, mozzies weren’t too bad but went in the middle of the day

Easy walk, did 17.52k all up. Was headed to Harrys hut but the bridge is out, plan to do it later including the swim across creek.

Easy walk, but the mosquitoes are really bad even in winter so do take the repellent.

Nice easy walk , but do take heavy duty mozzie repellent for this part of the coast.

A lot of different environments and plenty of bird life. Possibly the best view I've seen from an information centre in QLD. Don't forget to check out the viewing platform on the second level. The boardwalk is good for bird watching. Watch out for mosquitoes, even in winter there were so many.
