The great advantage of the huts is that you do not need to be weighed down with camping gear meaning that even those who are only moderately fit can complete this walk. Of course, instead of carrying tents and stoves, many travellers choose to fill their packs with bottles of wine and luxury cheeses instead. Whilst the huts are well-equipped, you do need to bring your own food.
Most travellers find that a 10kg pack which contains food, a sleeping bag and extra clothes is sufficient. Your longest trek will be a 17 kilometre round trip to Cape Pillar. For this day trip, you will be able to leave your backpack at Munro hut and simply carry food and water.
