(Sydney, NSW)

We only have 12 days to complete the loop, so timing is a bit tight. We leave early September and would like to know if the below itinerary sounds feasible? We would also like to know if anyone thinks there is a way that we could fit in Mornington Wilderness Camp, as we purchased Birgit's Guide and she recommends it?

No room for Mornington without cutting
by: Birgit

Hi Morag,
That looks certainly feasible as is. 12 days is not a lot for the big loop and the only way to fit in Mornington would be to ruthlessly cut elsewhere. Mornington needs two nights at least. It really does't make sense to drive out there just for a quick look.

Mornington isn't the only fabulous place that you'll have to skip this time. You may have to come back for another trip :-).
