An easy walk along an old farm track up / down the Avoca valley on the true left. A branch of the track crosses the Avoca upstream of the Basins Creek confluence, passes old (musterer's) Basins Hut and crosses Basins Creek to the new (NZFS) Basins Hut.
Both river crossings are OK in normal conditions, but wither could become impassible after heavy rain.
