I woke up around 6 and it was raining. No network reception or only so little that I couldn’t go online to check the weather forecast. I decided to stay inside the tent and wait a little bit and it fortunately stopped at around 9. Quick breakfast and off I went the first 6km on the street up Long Hilly Track and continued on Ports Water Race – an old mining track.

I made my way through severe jungle but the track was pleasant and mostly well prepared – not considering the uncountable number of trees that blocked the trail and needed some good improvisation skills on some of the steep parts.

But all good. I made it half way on the track to Martins Hut after 7h which would have been another 4h hike. I decided to pitch my tent in the jungle and rather have a short day tomorrow. Not easy to find a camping spot in the jungle… ?
