This is a great, relatively easy multi-day hike. I thought it would be a good one for multi-day hike beginners but I did read another review saying the opposite so I guess each to their own. We did it... more »

I hiked the thorsbourne trail 2 years ago and it was stunning. I went in late July and was lucky enough to have absolutely pristine weather. I like to hike solo and saw only 2 people in the entire 3 days, which was absolute bliss. I booked the ferry over from Lucinda with John from Absolute North charter's and he was a really fantastic skipper! The man knows so much about the island it's mind blowing so, thank John for me if you see him. I posted more pics of the snake for him on here too! Definitely definitely definitely take mosquito coils and repellent for the camp sites, I can't imagine what type of hell it would be without it.... Also make sure you know the tide times because salt water crocodiles are present in some Creek crossings which are tidal. I drank water straight from the creeks unfiltered with no worries (make sure it's flowing and clear ) there's no phone reception until you get to the last campsite (climb the waterfall for full bars) I wish I had been there for longer but I only had 3 days so my first day was a 15km stretch but the waterfall for a bath was worth it! Definitely going to return to this exquisite island for a longer trip!
