Get as fit as you can before you go. Can you walk 7.5 hours a day over rough terrain? If not, you will find it hard going! The great camaraderie of the group and the encouragement of the guides will get you through in the end, though. When it rains in Tasmania, it really rains! Just makes the Overland Track more of a challenge (not to mention the leeches!). But the lovely hot showers and the drying room in the huts mean a comfortable end to each day. The lovely meals created by our guides, Emma and Chris, were delicious even by "gourmet traveller" standards, and the free flowing local wines much appreciated. Thanks, Cradle Mtn Huts for a memorable experience!
