What will I see?
There is a reason this walk is so famous. The Overland Track is a 65km hiking route through the central highlands of Tasmania. Carved by glaciers, this ancient landscape has enchanted European adventurers for over a century and the Tasmanian Aboriginal's for 1000's of years more.
Over the course of 6-days, you will walk one way from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair, over high mountain passes, through ancient Gondwanan rainforest and past thundering waterfalls.
Then, you'll have the chance to explore trendy Hobart, with a visit to the world-famous Mona Museum and lunch in The Source Restaurant; a fine dining experience to round out the adventure of a lifetime.

What fitness level do I need?
The Overland Track requires a moderate-high level of physical fitness. The track will take us through varied terrain including muddy rainforests and steep mountains passes. But thankfully there are equal parts downhill and flat terrain on the hike. You should be prepared to walk 10kms per day carrying a 15 kg pack. Luckily there are plenty of scenic places to stop and catch our breath (and a photo or two) along the way!
To provide you with the best ‘pre-trip’ training, we consulted one of Sydney’s leading Personal Trainers, to develop a custom program specifically targeting the key muscles and fitness requirements for this hike. It’s a combination of both HIIT and strength training and will have you well on your way to success! The training program is included with all tour bookings!
And as with anything in this world, if you have any questions, concerns, or queries, we really are the best people to speak to! Plus we’re super friendly and love a chat! Head on over to our Contact Us page for all the details.

"What an amazing experience, made all the better with both of you and all your shared expertise. It’s such a cathartic experience feeling safe and serene while being physically pushed and totally out of your comfort zone at the same time. Can’t wait to feel that again. Thank you"
