This route is part of the Tailwind Ultra Collection
This is part of the Alps 2 Ocean trail and is very easy to follow - plenty of black signs pointing in the right directions, a few maps along the way to show your location and a very well maintained hard packed almost footpath type of trail.
Features of interest
The Elephant rocks are a cool feature, Aslans campsite (movie scene), Island Cliff is an impressive sight and the Rakis railway tunnel. Plenty to see along the way

Duntroon - just pull over anywhere in town, we started at the old jail/stocks
No public transport so you will need either dropped off or to get a ride back to your car when finished
Follow the black A2O markers and the well worn trail

There are two water points along the trail, also toilets. I wouldn't drink from any streams along the way due to being in dairy farming country
Quite muddy in spots after rain and when the frost melts
Post run indulgence
Great pizzas and tap beer and cider
