I was fortunate/unfortunate to do the Overland Track while it was quite heavily snowing, but the sceneries were breathtaking and the walk was perfectly doable in spite of the weather conditions (and I'm far from being a seasoned bush walker). The huts are warm and comfortable, as well as super environmental friendly. But really, it's guides that made the difference...

We chose the Tasmanian walking company and Cradle Mountain Huts to walk the Overland Track over 6 days. One of the best decisions we have made. Firstly, the guides are fantastic, thank you Nick and Ellie, and secondly the company gives you a gear list and assistance that is spot on. As this was our first big walk we decided...

True life experience: we have just completed Overland track with Tasmanian Walking company and it was great! Guides Andy, Alisha and Tom were super passionate, knowledgeable and caring, cooked delicious meals for us every day and we had so much fun together. Big thank you to you guys for running great tours and sharing your knowledge and passion with us!

Well, this is an excellent adventure so nothing less than 5 stars will do. The Overland Track is a great life experience, cosseted in a beautiful wilderness and you will emerge with many stories as we did, especially if your trek shoulders winter, as ours did! They say the weather is prone to change rapidly and they'd be right, trust...

Hi A380FlyBoy, Thanks so much for your review. We have certainly hit spring with a lot of snow and exciting weather in the mountains this year and it sounds like you had your share of it. The weather can certainly be a challenge but does give for lots of good stories to tell at the end of each day. Some...

Hi Gongboy53, Thanks so much for your review. It sounds like you had an amazing time with Nick, Kim and Will – a great bunch to do a walk with!

Nice way for those who like a bit of civilization to see unique backcountry: (Read: a way to get my wife out on a backpack with me.) Not luxury (thankfully) but solid food and wine, basic beds and showers. Guides were great and worked hard: thanks, Andy and Alice. And their knowledge of flora and bush tucker added to the...

There are many reasons why I cannot recommend this highly enough: each day is uniquely spectacular (soaring mountains, button grass moors, ancient forests,) the quality and skill of the guides, the lovely clean private huts, hot shows yummy food (and Tasmanian wine) and walking with interesting and diverse group of human beings for six days. We did this trek over...

I set off doing this with high expectations. Not only were they met, but they were exceeded in a way that you can only experience by doing the walk. The camaraderie with six other walkers I had never met as well as our amazing guides Dana and Pat. There was nothing they did not know about the flora and fauna....

The hike south along the Overland Track from Cradle Mountain is a challenge. The scenery is impressive, but the track itself and the side trips up nearby mountains and out to nearby lakes and waterfalls require a solid degree of fitness and resilience. While around half the track is covered by excellent boardwalks, the other half is often narrow, muddy,...

Hi paul888856 Thanks so much for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your walk, even if a bit challenging at times. Over the years more and more of the track has become great board walk, but due to the nature of the terrain it isn’t possible everywhere. I agree the huts should not be compared to other luxury lodges...
