The Overland Track from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair is a true wilderness walk renowned the world over. The Overland Track travels through spectacular dolerite mountains, near spectacular waterfalls, through a variety of differing ecosystems and close to Tasmania’s highest mountain Mt Osso, before finishing at Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St Clair. The beautiful scenery and the physical challenges of this mountain walk have ensured that the Overland Track has built a national and international reputation as one of the great wilderness bush walks.
As a result, demand for experiences on the Overland Track is high and with concerns about environmental degradation and overcrowding, it has been necessary to implement stringent limitations on people walking the Overland Track. It is imperative for the track to be managed strategically to ensure it remains a sustainable, safe, world class wilderness walk. To address this issue, a vision for the Overland Track was developed. A Recreation Zone Plan has been prepared to implement the changes to the Overland Track described in the visit. Click for guide to Camping Overland Track
