This section of the Dandongadale flows through virtually untouched forest, and for this reason alone is a good honest trip. It's banks are often only 8m apart although this was not an issue as there few hazards to negotiate.

At about a 3rd of the way through the trip there is an old hut and a 4x4 track back to the 'main' road.

We only encountered a few log jams within the first hundred metres of the trip.

Great beginner, touring, wilderness trip.
