Eight Day Overland Track

Bushwalk, Tasmania
Well defined and wide tracks on easy to moderate terrain, in slightly modified natural environments. You will require a modest level of fitness. The world renowned Overland Track is usually included in any list of the world’s great walks, and justifiably so. It showcases the highlights of Tasmania’s spectacular landforms and flora in a memorable 80km trek from Lake St Clair to Cradle Mountain. Discover glacial remnants of cirques, lakes and tarns; temperate rainforests of myrtle beech and sassafras, laurel and leatherwood; jagged mountain peaks of fluted dolerite columns (including Tasmania’s highest – Mt Ossa at 1617 metres); stark alpine moor lands and deep gorges and waterfalls. In the peak season, our tour starts at Dove Lake below the dramatic Cradle Mountain and finishes at Cynthia Bay on Lake St Clair, a glacial lake 220m deep, 14 kilometres long. At other times, we start at Lake St Clair and finish at Cradle Mountain, and spend a night in Pine Valley as an early side-trip on the way to Windy Ridge and a day base-camping at Waterfall Valley.
