The Overland Track runs from Waldheim near Cradle Mountain to Lake St. It's clear, for very good reasons, the most popular extended walk in Australia. Hikers, from all corners of the country and abroad, are drawn to this stunning region and experience the splendor of its mountain ranges, the beauty of its unique vegetation, and the sheer solitude of the wilderness. This seventy kilometer (forty four mile) walk can normally be completed in five days, but for the seven of us, to better appreciate the special points of interest along the way.
Your schedule will include time to visit the tops of some of the tallest mountains in the state, perhaps even Mount Ossa, the tallest of them all.
Groups are limited to a maximum of ten people, a true sense of group identity develops, making this wilderness experience you know will be memorable.
