Did this hike over two days starting at Fortescue Bay via the old cape pillar track. Great Hike. Big first day if going to cape pillar return. Recommend staying at bare knoll campsite rather than Wughalee, the climb in and out of wughalee isn't necessary given the closeness of bare knoll to the track. Great hike, highly recommend

Stunning views of the Tasman Peninsula! I would recommend this 3 day walk 100%, fantastic facilities, excellent walking terrain. Worth every cent.

Did the three day camping version. Very scenic and great views over the region. Highly recommended!

A long but very scenic day trip - the tracks are generally VERY good and it's easy walking. Would have been a bit boring doing this over 4 days.
