Cradle Mountain / Overland Track    March 2010

Walk review from Fiona Collie, Cradle Mountain / Overland Track

I will be eternally grateful that Cradle Mountain Huts provides a service where a princess like me can enjoy all the beauty that the Overland Track has to offer.


It was a challenging walk, made so much easier with the comforting knowledge of a hot shower at the end of the day. I enjoyed the experience so much more than I thought I would, and that is saying a lot. One thing the preparation kits don't mention is that there are drying rooms in each hut, so if you are wearing quickdry clothes, you can wash and dry each night. Thanks to our guides Gemma and Nick who were fantastic!
