If you not in a rush, you don't have to get up early. Although the start is quite steep, once you've reached the plateau it is more or less a catwalk. Sometimes hikers are like horses and go faster smelling "home", in our case the end of the trip. Take you time !!
A perfect sandy beach awaits you, visible long before one actually arrives at Natures Valley. Don't miss out on a swim in the sea and a refreshing warm shower - for a change - at the rest camp. Spoil yourself with a refreshment from the Trading Store and receive - on request - your well earned certificate.
Depending how you've got to the start of the Otter, you might have to take the bus to welcome back one of your most valued civil assets - after being away for five days in the bush - your car.
