We had originally intended to do a full traverse of the Arthur Range finishing at Federation Peak - but we had a lot of bad weather on the Western Arthurs and when were reached Pass Creek at the base of the Eastern Arthurs - more bad weather was forecast. So we bailed out early and spent a few days at Mt Field National Park.
