Stay with your plan to walk the track, albeit you can’t go all the way through end to end. Go to Blackball
and hike into your hut – be it Ces Clark, Moonlight or Pororari. The walk is stunning and once you gain the tops, the views both directions are awesome. Spend the night and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow hut occupants. The following day turn around and walk back down the track to the Smoke-ho carpark and catch a shuttle
down the new road to Blackball. Its a great place to overnight, so check out the options there
Alternatively, if you are staying in the Ces Clark or Moonlight Huts, take the Croesus Track
on day two and descend down into Barrytown
on the West Coast. You can then catch our shuttle
back from Barrytown back to Blackball to your vehicle.
