At A Glance

Discover the rare beauty and extraordinary diversity of Tasmania's World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park. Over 4 days, walk the iconic Overland Track following in your guides' highly experienced footsteps. 

This moderately challenging four-day, fully guided walk starts at Waldheim in Cradle Valley, walking south along the Overland Track, then west along the Innes Track to Arm River, near Lake Rowallan - all located within Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park and Tasmania's World Heritage Area.

Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park, with its ancient rainforests and alpine heaths, is one of the state's most special places, where ancient pines fringe glacial lakes and icy streams cascade down rugged mountains. Walking the Overland Track is a highly rewarding, life-changing experience. Almost half of the track is over 1000 metres in elevation on exposed plateaus in a remote area. 

In the evening, unwind and relax in the comfort of the only private accommodation along the trail. Enjoy a hot shower, sumptuous meals, freshly baked bread, a glass or two of Tasmanian wine and a comfortable bed.

Your tour includes four days of walking with two passionate and educated guides, 3 nights twin share accommodation, return transfers between Launceston and the walk base, all meals and non-alcoholic beverages, plus a limited selection of Tasmanian wines, and all National Park and Overland Track passes and use of a backpack and Gore-tex jacket.

Discover the incredible beauty of this iconic part of Tasmania. This rewarding experience will be an adventure you remember forever. At every stage your tour will be enhanced by the knowledge and passion of the field guides who work tirelessly to ensure each guest is safe, engaged and well fed.

  • Accommodation

    Private Cradle Huts
    True shelter, something that gives protection and refuge, simple and sustainable, clean and comfortable.


    Operating in such a delicate environment, Cradle Mountain Huts places a great deal of importance on minimal impact track and hut practices and the huts are designed to be ecologically sustainable. Each hut is architecturally designed to maximize cross flow ventilation and operate with maximum efficiency with renewable energy.


    The remote location of the huts demands that they are autonomous in terms of servicing; rain water is channelled off the roofs into tanks, and the huts incorporate self-composting, water-free batching toilets. Phosphorous-free soap is provided to you, and all waste water is separated through grease traps and sand filters. The residue is regularly removed from each site, along with all other rubbish.  Gas and solar are the only sources of power, used for lighting, heating and cooking.


    Provisioning of these huts is a unique procedure, once again due to their remote location. Only twice each season, supplies of food, wine and gas cylinders are flown in by helicopter over a two-day period, while all garbage and waste matter is flown out. Nothing is left within the National Park.

  • Food & Wine

  • What Insiders Say

  • FAQ's

    How often do trips depart?
    
Our 6 day trips depart daily from 1 October through to 1 May each season, and our 4 day trips depart on selected dates during the same period.

    Accommodation
    Our groups have exclusive use of the only private hut accommodation along the Overland Track. Each hut has been discreetly located off the main trail and offers hot showers, a drying room and a dining and lounge area. The huts have 5 twin rooms with comfortable beds.

    Food
    The guides prepare scrumptious three course meals each night. We are quite happy to cater for special dietary requirements. We just need to know in advance.

    Sample menu:
    
 On arrival at hut: Antipasto platter, including Ashgrove cloth-matured cheddar, Lactos brie, Tasmanian pickled onions, pesto dip, dried apricots and cashews.
    
 Entree: Hearty minestrone soup
    
 Main course: Forest mushroom and pea risotto with parmesan
    
 Dessert: Freshly baked cherry pie with cream

    How many guests?
    Each trip requires a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 12 guests. All accommodation is twin share. If you book on as a single walker and the trip fills to capacity, you may share a room with another walker of any gender.

    How much weight, and what do we carry?
    On the morning of your departure, the guides will carry out a thorough gear check to ensure you have suitable gear and help you reduce pack weight. If you adhere to our gear list (see below), your pack will likely weigh between 8.5 and 9.5 kg. With special attention to reducing pack weight, your pack and its contents can weigh as little as 7.5 kg. The pack and Gore-tex jacket that we provide have a combined weight of 2.5 kg, leaving 5- 7 kg for your personal items.

    Each person must carry their lunch, wet weather gear, spare clothes for the hut, thermals, and warm clothing, plus any extras, such as a camera. For details, please refer to the gear list we will provide to you after booking.

    How fit do I need to be?
    As long as you exercise regularly, are capable of walking an average of 10 km for four consecutive days, and are comfortable with varied terrain, you’ll be fine! There are obviously steep sections, however this is part of the whole experience. Each day, there is plenty of time to sit and rest as well as explore, so you won’t feel rushed.

    How many guides?
    Our guides are passionate outdoor enthusiasts, educated interpreters and fantastic cooks all rolled into one. Two knowledgeable guides accompany each trip. This allows plenty of time for interpretation at interesting points along the track, photo opportunities, rest breaks and walking at your own pace.

    What footwear do I need for the walk?
    Lace-up hiking boots that cover the ankle and have sturdy, treaded soles (full-grain leather or Gore-tex with Vibram soles) are recommended.

    It is very important for you to have appropriate footwear. Lower-profile hiking shoes, walking shoes, running shoes, approach shoes, sand shoes, elasticised boots and similar are not acceptable for the walk. Boots must be worn in to minimise the risk of blisters. The Overland Track is quite unique in the nature of its terrain. You will be unable to commence the walk without the appropriate footwear.

    Do we need travel insurance?
    We strongly recommend travel insurance. Consideration needs to be given to our cancellation policy, injury, evacuation, delayed flights, illness, etc. Please see our website for details and contact us if you have any questions.

    What accommodation options do we have pre and post walk?
    Quamby Homestead (4 star) is located 25 minutes west of Launceston, and it is a great pre- and post-walk option. The homestead is located on the same estate as our walkers' base (only 100m away), so it is very convenient. Quamby has beautifully appointed rooms in one of Tasmania’s premier historic homes. The homestead offers continental and hot breakfast options, as well as an airport shuttle service.

    The Sebel Launceston (4.5 star) is an elegant, European-inspired boutique hotel located within walking distance of Launceston's CBD and colourful Seaport. Integrating boutique elegance with style and convenience, the all-suite accommodation comprises 49 beautifully detailed, fully self-contained, spacious 1 and 2 bedroom suites, all with separate bedrooms and bathrooms, many featuring a spa bath or laundry. The hotel also features a convenient fitness centre and is located in the centre of town, close to all of Launceston's Major attractions.

    Changes to Itineraries

In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided.

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which OCT4 Pty Ltd or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure OCT4 Pty Ltd will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    Evacuations
    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.

    reviews The overall experience was great. We loved the Overland Track. Our guide Andy was fun to be with. He is awesome, and I enjoyed his company. The huts along the track were simply and can be better, understanding it's remote location.
