Hi, we’re heading to Mt Bowen in a few weeks. Does anyone have any recent experience there, and can indicate the current conditions please?

I was there in mid July hiking the Thorsborne Trail and conditions were dry but all the creeks were flowing well so we had no trouble getting water. It didn't rain for at least the 7 days we were in the area. I haven't followed the weather since we left.

This was Mt Bowen from Zoe Bay one morning, that was about as much cloud as we saw all week.

Don't underestimate how cold it can be in the saddle before the summit, if you are staying there overnight.
Ever on the search for a one ended stick.
