Got off to an early start. 7:40 am.
Had a hill immediately upon leaving camp. Crested after 2.5 k’s and 1 hour, hard yakka.
Downhill was 5 k’s long and very steep. Also hard yakka and took 2 hours to get to the bottom.
Hardly any shade today. Hardly any bird life either, the rainforest is a very quiet place, it can be quite errie and I can understand how some people find it claustraphobic.
Did see what I think was a wombat, just caught sight of it scurrying off into the bush.
Stopped for a 20 minute nap at 12:20 ish.
Struggled with the MW and balance today.
Made it to Ayton about 3 pm.
Confirmed by chatting to a local that I’d have to walk up a hill similar to the one I’d come down in order to get out of town. I don’t think so!
Staying at the Bloomfield Beach Caravan park for 12:50 per night. Booked 2 nights.
Daily distance. 20.4 k’s.
Total distance. 70.5 K’s.
