The Overland Track

Welcome to The Overland Track

Hi, my names Lee and I love hiking. I want to help you organise your hike along The Overland Track, as I was quite daunted at everything you need to plan for, and what little information was available on the internet. If you would like to know more about me and my experience, check out the About Me page.

 What is The Overland Track

The Overland Track is one of Australia’s most iconic multi day hikes. Residing in the heart of Tasmania, the hike covers 65 kilometers between Cradle Mountain and Lake St. Claire. The track winds through the world heritage listed national park and passes some of the highest peaks in Tasmania, the most famous being Cradle Mountain. That’s me in the photo standing on top of it. One of the biggest attractions to the walk is the vast changes in scenery as you progress, from mountains, rainforest and alpine plains.

The walk starts just north of Cradle Mountain and finishes at Lake St. Claire, however many people choose to walk the final 17km around the lake, that’s what I chose to do!

The walk  normally takes 5 or 6 days but you may choose to take as little or as long as you want. There are many side trips you can take and easily extend your hike up to 10 days, and I highly recommend doing them.
