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.
