Very challenging
The Overland Track is an iconic 4-10 day walk in the heart of Tasmania wilderness. The main spine of this walk guides you through incredibly diverse environments from alpine to lakeside rainforest. Side trips give you access to Mt Ossa, the highest peak in Tasmania as well as many other great peaks, waterfalls and other fantastic places to explore. There are well-established campsites with huts, toilets and tank water each night, a tent is needed as the public huts can not be booked. This track is very popular, especially during summer, you can walk with a guide or do the trip selfguided. Bookings are required during the warmer seasons with spaces filling up quickly. Snow and extreme weather are very possible any time of year, everyone walking the track requires bushwalking experience, those walking in the colder months requires extra alpine walking skills, experience and equipment. Let us begin by acknowledging the Palawa people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
