Cradle Mountain / Overland Track    February 2011

Walk review from Kerry, Cradle Mountain / Overland Track Tasmania

I’ve landed back home after a wonderful holiday in Tasmania with friends.


We walked the Overland Track from Sun 27 Feb – Fri 04 Mar with Mim, Emily and Nick. What a fabulous time we had, and having chatted with the Public Hut & Camping walkers, can strongly vouch that the trip was money well spent.

What an asset Mim is to your team – her unflagging enthusiasm and dazzling smile, all the whilst ensuring we were okay, is amazing. If all Guides demonstrate that level of commitment, then the company is truly fortunate to have such a wonderful team. She knew all the landmarks, and instilled a sense of awe at the remarkable environment we travelled through.

Big congrats to Emily for completing her first guiding trip – she seemed to follow Mims high standards with ease, and I’m sure she’ll be a valuable guide.

Nick’s gentle humour and great botanical knowledge ensued we had fun and picked up a few botanical facts along the way – even if the Latin got lost in the translation of ‘Chinese Whispers’ – a delightfully amusing part of the trip.

And what’s not to rave about the food (and wine). Particularly Mims chocolate cake and the fun spirit of Russells 40th b’day cake night, and the ‘dress for dinner’ last night on the track.

We’re a very happy group of Overland Track-ers, and will be recommending Cradle Huts to all.
