Welcome to The Overland Track

Let's prepare to have fun and thrive on track

Yes, the rumours are true, it can and often does snow in summer. People have died from hypothermia (being too cold) on this track, even during summer. These articles will help you pack well, understand the conditions, set helpful expectations, eat well and enjoy walking even in wet and cold weather.

Walking the Overland Track is not rocket science, but you will need to be well prepared and have the right gear. You will also have more fun if you eat well and are fit enough. The more prepared you are the more you will be able to relax and enjoy your time on the track.

Chances are you will also see some gorgeous sunny days, meet amazing people and make memories that will last a lifetime.

Happy walking
