I'm convinced.

Next time to Aussie I will get there.

Will post a link to your trip report once you finish the editing.

Hi Frank,

Good blog- Thanks.

I am planning to do the Thorsborne pretty soon. My wife and I are reasonably experienced hikers and reasonably fit - do we need to allow for three nights, or would two be comfortable enough to complete it?

Would love your advice.
Cheers, Tim

Hi Tim,
Welcome to the blog . We did this walk in 4 nights and I suppose it depends on your approach. I really reckon you would be pushing it in 2 so would allow three BUT it is such a beautiful place why not take your time and have a swim (or three) and enjoy yourselves.

The sandflies and march flies are the most painful part so make sure you take some DEET.

Hope you have a great time and please let us know how you go.
Frank

Hey Frank,
Thanks for that. I have taken your advice and we'll stay the extra one (or two) nights on the trail.
Originally I was trying to get on there for my wifes birthday as a surprise, but QPWS only had the 2 nights available at that time.
I have now postponed it a month and will enjoy a more leisurely walk with her.
Thanks again.
Tim
