At A Glance

Discover the rare beauty and extraordinary diversity of Tasmania's World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park. Over 6 days, walk the iconic Overland Track following in your guides' highly experienced footsteps. 

Walking the Overland Track is a challenging yet highly rewarding, life-changing experience across diverse landscapes from alpine plateaus to majestic forests. Almost half of the track is above 1000 metres in elevation on exposed plateaus in a remote area. You'll witness iconic sights such as the dramatic glacially-carved Crater Lake and Waterfall Valley, climb to Marion's look out offering spectacular views of Cradle Mountain with Dove Lake at its base. You will travel across plains where glaciers once sat and slowly moved, scouring out shallow tarns, visit Pellion Plains where you'll discover excellent swimming holes and abandoned copper mines.

Your tour culminates with Lake St Clair, Australia's deepest natural lake. The walk around Lake St Clair is mainly through cool temperate eucalypt forest, surrounding by incredible bird life and finishes with a spectacular 17km cruise back to Cynthia Bay. 


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.

Included in your tour is 5-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, as well as all National park passes, boat transfers across Lake St Clair, use of a backpack and Gore-tex jacket for the duration of the walk.

This challenging and incredibly 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.

    Luxury walk at the iconic location: Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, with its ancient rainforests and alpine heaths, is home to the world-famous Overland Track and iconic Cradle Mountain. Part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, the park is one of the state's most special places, where ancient pines fringe glacial lakes and icy streams cascade down rugged mountains.

    Exclusive accommodation: True shelter, something that gives protection and refuge, simple and sustainable, clean and comfortable. You 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 a hot shower, drying room and twin share accommodation.

    Gourmet food & wine: Each night, your guides will prepare scrumptious three-course, dinners which can be enjoyed with a selection of Tasmanian wines. In the mornings, wake up to the aroma of hot coffee and tea brewing, freshly baked bread and a selection of cereals and porridge.

    Walk with experts: Your field guides are passionate, educated, great interpreters and cooks all rolled into one.  The guides will enhance your journey with their knowledge and understanding of the flora, fauna, geology and history of the Overland Track and the wonders of the World Heritage Area.
  • 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

    The luxury walk will surprise you with the quality of the food and wines. Each night your guides cook up a three-course feast that you can enjoy with a selection of Tasmanian wines.

While every effort will be made to provide the services and experiences as offered in our brochure, on our website, and in our trip letters, we reserve the right to vary your itinerary. In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided.

We refer you to the conditions regarding travel insurance.

    Pre-Existing Medical Conditions and Age Limits

    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.

    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 A group of 8 of us did the walk when we travelled to Australia. We wanted to walk The Overland Track and found ONLYLUXE CLUB. They are very helpful and friendly. The walk was great and must-do. The huts along the track were comfortable. We carried our own pack but it wasn't too hard. Meals were good and guides were knowledgeable.

    reviews I just did the Overland Track walk. It was the best holiday I have ever been on. My guides were professional and fantastic, and kept us safe. The food was amazing and accommodation was comfortable. Worth every cent.
