Overland Track - by Tzachy

5-7 days, 65 km, December - March/April

Tasmania is becoming very popular with hikers, particularly the Overland Track through the Tasmanian Wilderness. It traverses the highest ground in Tasmania. Expect to find rainforest as well as alpine environment, moors as well as sharp peaks, maybe snow, and numerous lakes. It's beautiful. The downside, of course, is the necessity of regulating the number of visitors. Bookings required from November till April.

  • Positive Alpine scenery, side trips to peaks, lake and waterfalls, huts and facilities, well groomed track
  • Negative Not much, be prepared for bad weather, some of the animals are getting a bit overly friendly and will try and get into your pack, especially the Currawongs at Pelion Gap. Some people appear daunted by the scrambling on some of the side trips.
