General - There are now a large number of tiny campsites (one or two tents) scattered along the trail - they are too numerous to individually describe.
All the shelter huts except Simpsons Gap have solar powered USB charging stations

Section 3 and 4, Mulga Camp has been moved one km to the west.
Section 8 - the descent (or ascent) from Brinkley Bluff to Stuarts Pass has been re-routed with many zig-zags and is now 1.4km longer..
Section 8 and 9 - a three sided shelter with open bunks and water tank has been constructed at Birthday Waterhole Junction.
Section 10 and 11 - Hugh Gorge, a three sided shelter with water tank has been constructed west of the creek.
Section 12 and 13 - Ellery Creek, the track has been moved to the north side of the Heavitree range. A shelter hut has been built at Elllery Creek North and an extra locked food drop site has been provided near the car park for Serpentine Gorge.
