RouteMelaleuca - Freney Lagoon (N1) - Louisa River (N2) - Little Deadmans Bay (N3) - Prion Boat Crossing - Osmiridium Beach (N4) - Surprise Beach - Granite Beach (N5) - South Cape Rivulet (N6) - Cockle Creek
NotesAn old escape route for ship-wrecked sailors, this path crosses wild and remote scenery. Frequent rain and muddy sections make the path slippery in some places and tree-roots add to the ankle-wrenching possibilities (especially the western side of the Ironbounds). The route does however have a true wilderness feeling and a chance to be completely self-sufficient, and there's even the distraction of borrowing a rowing boat to cross New River Lagoon. It's worth checking for up-to-date information before setting off on this path as conditions and routes near the sandbar sections can change.

RouteJunction Creek - Lake Cygnus (N1) - Mt Hayes - Square Lake [Mt Orion side trip] - Lake Oberon - Lake Cygnus (N2) - Junction Creek
NotesAlthough a full traverse of the Western Arthurs is a difficult walk, it's relatively straighforward to reach the heart of the range along Morraine A. The mountains are wonderfully craggy with the path somehow managing to navigate through seemingly impossible slopes. The astronomically-named lakes amongst the peaks are serene and the views from peaks such as Mt Orion superb.
