Another great trip report.
Can't believe I missed this till now.
Hello from Central Coast QLD
No they would not, they would hold there ground and bite if your within range and its very likely you would see them. Its just your bears are a lot bigger. :)
How great it could be, if we could all hike together. You have some nice country over there, I'm just not so sure about the bears, i think i prefer the snakes, spiders, dingos and leeches over your...

That banana muffin looks like a winner to me. Baking paper helps a lot. I like the idea of taken the baking paper up the sides. I might try this on my next overnight hike.
The egg rings are...
I've got this one marked to watch later tonight. Looking forward to it. I heard a rumor there some dry baking included. :)
Egg ring: :)
I was wondering if you called them egg rings in the states.
We use egg rings for frying eggs. It makes a nice round fried egg.
In regards to the spacer use a egg ring instead.
Hi, I thoroughly enjoyed your trip report. I'm going to watch it again. That is one cool area to hike. reminds me a lot of where I live. with the waterfalls and the pine Forrest.
You might find some help here. This is my UL pack list.

Great vid. Looks like a fun walk.
I own a HG cuben tarp and live in a very high UV area, so far no issues with my tarp. I do make an effort to minimize exposure to sunlight.
For myself tent camping is lighter, but the lightweight is off put by the comfort factor. Hammock is a lot more comfortable for me.
My shelter is a MLD Cuben Duomid.
It was a bit scary to cross, the way it was shaking me from side to side. :)
I was glad when I got to the other side.
Here are my offerings from my last few overnight hikes.
Normally I would record the sound and speak as I'm walking, but this occasion I chosen to use background music, reason being, the GoPro is hopeless at recording sound and I was getting this loud...

Good luck. It would be great if the parks service do cater for hammocks in the area.
I am an owner of a cuben tarp for a year now and my tarp looks the same as the day I purchased it. Tarps are not the same as stuff sucks, they don't endure the punishments that stuff sucks suffer, ...
Yes I saw a few mountain bikes on day two.
Yeh. The countryside is pretty here.
Hopefully someone local in Sydney can organize a hang. I will be in the area for the next few weeks.
I your willing to do that in the next few weeks in Sydney. I will be interested.
Thanks born2roam. I am also looking forward to the vid, but that could be a few weeks away, maybe longer.
Actually I worn my beanie cause I couldn't find my hat, I wanted to keep the sun of...
Only 2km into town. The trail finished where I taken the lift.
I think I will come back in a couple weeks and do this hike in the reverse direction. I will make sure I take extra storage cards. ...
