Cradle Mountain Huts Walk    January 2014

I have just returned from walking the Overland Track with Cradle Mountain Huts, it was originally planed for my wife to accompany me but health issues came to a head whilst we were training for the walk and as to not let the team down I was dispatched on my 60th birthday to fly to Launcestion.


The following six days were spent walking some of the most beautiful landscapes imaginable, from start to finish our guides Gemma and Kenna kept everybody entertained, nourished, safe and spoilt rotten they were incredibly attentive, knowledgeable, hardworking and enthusiastic young people that any organization should be proud to have on board.

From Pickup to drop off every thing flowed seamlessly, we were blessed to have had six sunny days of trekking with all the comforts of home in this World Heritage Area. Everybody had their individual needs met mine being time to stop and take photographs and someone to listen to me.

I feel that this walk has changed my life!

Many thanks,
