Stage 6: Hardwicke Bay to Port Victoria- (50.0k) 6am start, 23hr cut off, Friday 25th August.

The penultimate stage. And we finish at the doorstep of a pub. You can thank me later for this!

I’m not going to lie, there is a fair bit of beach to traverse on this section. And if the Westerly’s are blowing, it will be a tough slog, but it is the shortest of all stages and the coastline once again doesn’t disappoint.

It is quite isolated for 5-10k stretches which will be such a beautiful think as you are travelling on your second to last day and reminisce about what has happened over the last week to get you to the point you are at that very moment.

Soak it all up, because this section, takes you to the final stretch.
