Cradle Mountain / Overland Track    October 2023

Walk review from Annie, Cradle Mountain / Overland Track Tasmania

Had an amazing trip, thanks to our guides Sam and Claire and a great group.


As mentioned in other comments, the Overland Track is not for the faint hearted. Definitely worth the challenge and expect to get wet feet. Incredibly beautiful from snow covered mountains and tracks, to button grass plains, lakes and rainforests. Both Sam and Claire are very knowledgeable and informative along the way, imparting historical, botanical and geological information, plus they are fantastic hosts, making sure we were all well fed and watered every day. Food, drinks and accommodation are really worth the daily trek. Nice hot showers, I didn't need the full 4 mins by the way. The whole trip is very well organised, with safety being the top priority. Note you do only need what they suggest on the packing list. If you take more, you need to carry it! Thanks so much Tasmanian Walking Company for an amazing experience. Thankfully this beautiful place is World Heritage listed.
