Looking to do North to South in April if you are in a position to delay your start?
Have done the route 3-5 times but not recently.
Slow but steady walker.

Spoke to Corrine at Southwest Parks Tas.Port Davey track fire is still burning at Scotts Peak Dam Rd & south.Very unlikely that PD track will be opened in the next month.
Looks like next year for me.
Thank you for your interest
