Stinson Crash Site from Christmas Creek (Lamington National Park)
2 Oct, 2021
Hard
15km return
8 hrs
Start early and carry a lot of water, a decent GPS device (walking off track is VERY easy) and consider overnight camping. If you want to do the return hike in one day, be on the trail at 6am to avoid walking out in darkness.

Awesome trail but no water once you leave Xmas creek. We overnighted at Stinson remote bush camp (lovely and relatively flat). Water carriage essential - plan on minimum of 2 litres per person each way plus extra.

Gardening gloves (cheapies from Bunnings) great for bashing through grabby vines and scrambling up muddy slopes holding onto roots. Highly recommend. Gaiters also a must for this one (mud, leeches and ticks). Take tick remover as party of 4 endured 3 ticks on walk up alone.

Next time I go I intend to replace rope at cliff section. Still in ok condition but god knows how old it is now?
