I am just back from a winter walk. Wow, what an experience. Firstly a very big shout out to Nick, Kim and Will our guides. You are amazing young men who made this a great experience. You worked tirelessly and never lost your composure, grace or good humour. Your knowledge of the Track was amazing. If you are ableto do... More

Nice way for those who like a bit of civilization to see unique backcountry: (Read: a way to get my wife out on a backpack with me.) Not luxury (thankfully) but solid food and wine, basic beds and showers. Guides were great and worked hard: thanks, Andy and Alice. And their knowledge of flora and bush tucker added to the... More

There are many reasons why I cannot recommend this highly enough: each day is uniquely spectacular (soaring mountains, button grass moors, ancient forests,) the quality and skill of the guides, the lovely clean private huts, hot shows yummy food (and Tasmanian wine) and walking with interesting and diverse group of human beings for six days. We did this trek over... More

Hi minmin_62, Thanks so much for your review. I am really pleased you had a great time on the Overland Track with Mitch and Nick – as you said they both have extensive experience and their knowledge is quite extraordinary. Some great advice given regarding boots and leaving bits and pieces behind. Having a new pair of hiking boots walked... More

I set off doing this with high expectations. Not only were they met, but they were exceeded in a way that you can only experience by doing the walk. The camaraderie with six other walkers I had never met as well as our amazing guides Dana and Pat. There was nothing they did not know about the flora and fauna.... More

Took a 4 day walk along the overland track. The scenery was excellent. Guides were very experienced and friendly. We had a side walk up to the top of Mt. Oakleigh which was tough but worth every step. If you want to experience Tasmania, this trip could fulfil your wish. And at the end of the day, you could have... More

The hike south along the Overland Track from Cradle Mountain is a challenge. The scenery is impressive, but the track itself and the side trips up nearby mountains and out to nearby lakes and waterfalls require a solid degree of fitness and resilience. While around half the track is covered by excellent boardwalks, the other half is often narrow, muddy,... More

Hi paul888856 Thanks so much for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your walk, even if a bit challenging at times. Over the years more and more of the track has become great board walk, but due to the nature of the terrain it isn’t possible everywhere. I agree the huts should not be compared to other luxury lodges... More

We recently completed the 6 day Cradle Mountain Huts - Overland Track and I can't talk more highly about the experience.
