Lovely hut, awful track :D Slept here the 12/10/2020, there was a drinking water jar full, tap water (need to be boil), gas, pots and cutlery. About the track : it's tough, almost no flat part and the last 2 km are the worst so keep some energy for the end. It took us 7h the 1rst day and 8h on the way back the 2nd day. You will be rewarded with an amazing view, gorgeous sunset too. You can take a water taxi at Deep Water Cove (2.5h to the hut) or at the hut directly. Challenge yourself but don't forgot your limit !
