Anthony came and got me after work and we headed off to St Arnaud to catch the water taxi at 7.00pm. Early to St Arnaud so we got some coffee and some beer and then the water taxi to Coldwater hut jetty. Not stopping at the coldwater that night, its on into the evening with a walk to Johnnie the Tait hut for the night.
Up sort of early and walked to Cupola hut with a few stops along the way as the day was hot and clear. Found that the bridge is not needed as there is plenty of places where a jump gets you across.
So we got onto the zig zag and the following photos are on the way up and down in no particular order.

Walked out to Coldwater jetty from Cupola hut and got water taxi back. A nice relaxing day, had a wander across the river but it was thigh high and quite pushy in places. So we did not do the river thing and opted for the up down track thru the bush.
