I dragged my family, 15 & 13yr boys, 11yr girl and hubby to complete this walk - something I have wanted to do for 25 years! For good measure we had 2 friends join us who had never bush walked before - prefect recipe for disaster....The result was the complete opposite, it was the most magical family experience we have...

We started the 6 day Overland on the 29th March with Australian friends we met 5 years ago on the Milford Track. Since then we do a hike somewhere once a year and this time we decided to meet them at home. We were the only non Australians in the 10 person group. From pick up at the Sebel, to... More

Hi Murray A, It sounds like you had a great walk with James & Tim. It’s great to read that the food exceeded your expectations – it is quite special to be served a 3 course dinner in the middle of the wilderness! I hope you had a lovely birthday and that you enjoyed the cake. Cheers, Ros More

I walked this track with a group of friends in March. We had a great time and were very well looked after by our guides, Tom and Elias. They were full of information about the area and worked together so well. We were served delicious meals every day and really enjoyed the Tasmanian produce, wine etc. Huts were clean, comfortable...

This trip surpassed our expectations, the guides were both knowledgable and passionate about their work and really made us enjoy every minute. The food was fantastic and the huts really make the weather seem irrelevant (when it was bad). We had some great days, some long days (up mt oakley but worth the effort) and comfortable warm nights in spectacular... More

We walked with Cradle Huts in March, could not fault anything, the guides were informative and very supportive, which I needed as I was the slowest walker out of the 10 in our group. Guides soon realised I did not like anyone behind me but I knew they were nearby should I want them. Meals were surprisingly good and it... More

Wow, the Cradle Mountain Huts Overland Adventure tour definitely rates as one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The guides Will and Vito were truly wonderful, nothing was too much trouble and they ensured that everyone pushed their comfort levels to try new things. They were also very happy to explain plants, flowers, trees and wildlife. The highlights... More

We expected more, having taken the spectacular Bay of Fires walk 10 years ago. This company is under new ownership. We did the 4 day Cradle Huts walk in December. The guides were inexperienced (one admitted they had not walked this trek in 10 years!). Neither offered any knowledge of the landscape, the track or its history (as advertised). We... More

On our 24 January departure we were in the very capable hands of guides Nick and Alice. I cannot compliment them highly enough. They made sure we had a fantastic time throughout the trip.
