Larapinta Trek

We had a wonderful time on our recent 8 day Larapinta Trek. The trip was made all the more enjoyable by the assistance of our guides Adrian and Craig. Their flexibility, steady temperaments, knowledge, friendship, experience, sense of humor and ability in the kitchen took all the difficulties out of our experience. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything that should have happened happened, and happened when it should have. They made the whole experience for us a simple walk in the bush. We could not reccommend them more highly.

The Overland Track

The Overland Track holds a legendary status as one of the finest walks in Australia. Suitable for first time bushwalkers who are ready to carry a full pack, this unforgettable trek along a graded trail through the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area will take you from the stunning crags of Cradle Mountain to the rainforest-clad shores of Lake St. Clair. Every step will lead to new discoveries and some of mother nature's finest creations including waterfalls, dolerite mountains, lakes, tarns and diverse ecosystems. Rest by a cool mountain stream, admire the view of a glassy lake reflecting the surrounding peaks or be intrigued by the delicate cushion plants thriving amongst alpine extremes. The itinerary is ideal for walkers looking to make the most out of their time in the area by appreciating the many highlights and exciting side trips you'll undertake along the way. Food drops and modern lightweight equipment will keep your backpacks relatively light while your experienced guides will help bring the track to life thanks to their local knowledge & enthusiasm for the Tasmanian wilderness.

traveller reviews

A not to be missed adventure in Tasmania. We chose the six day, full backpack, camping option.
This is not a casual " stroll through the park " , and together with driving hail and gale force winds whilst ascending Cradle Mountain, and rain most days, it was also very challenging. In spite of that, we enjoyed the experience immensely, and would recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure and a desire to enjoy the beautiful nature that abounds throughout the Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair National Park. Tasmanian Expeditions were totally professional at every level of service provided., Our guides were the difference between an ordinary and an exceptional experience with creative cooking skills...ongoing support and encouragement at all times and detailed knowledge of the Track and it's history. Accept the challenge...you will not be disappointed.
