Overland Track

The Overland Track is one of the worlds Greatest Walks. It connects the iconic Cradle Mountain with Lake St Clair.

Your guided walk starts at Cradle Valley and snakes its way through rainforests and past craggy mountain peaks and alpine moors to Lake St Clair.

Your walk is over 5 nights and 6 days and this style of tour is camping in twin share four season tents on our private platforms.

This is a full pack trek and it is suitable for novice bushwalkers. You also carry less as we have pre-arranged food drops along the track.

Our itinerary is well researched and we give you the flexibility to either - do all the "side trips" or you can take it more leisurely and stick to the main track
