The “Total Time” is my time in December which includes morning tea time and lunch time and many photo shooting time. That day was fine and the tracks were good. We didn’t get to the Waikara Beach due to time tight and car problem. If you slow down to average 2.5 km/h plus 60 min stop then the total time will be around 5:15hrs.
