DAY 7

- on Tuesday, 30 May 2017.

Day 7.

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.
