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. Winding you way along a graded trail through the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area with each step you will be surrounded by breathtaking views, from the stunning crags of Cradle Mountain to the rainforest-clad shores of Lake St. Clair. Your journey will lead to new discoveries and some of mother nature's finest creations including waterfalls, dolerite mountains, lakes, tarns and diverse ecosystems. 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. This full pack trek is suitable for first time bushwalkers as the inclusion of food drops and modern lightweight equipment will keep your backpacks as light as possible while your experienced guides will help bring the track to life thanks to their local knowledge and enthusiasm for the Tasmanian wilderness.

traveller reviews

Experiencing the Overland Track through Tasmanian Expeditions was the best choice I could have made. It's clear that their guides truly love what they do and want to help others enjoy Tasmania too. They allow you to immerse yourself in your surroundings on your own, while providing valuable information about the history of the area and it's current state. Given the chance, I'd travel with them again without thinking twice about it. The highlight for me was making it to the top of Mt. Ossa and being the tallest thing on Tasmania, if only for 5 minutes. I even managed to get phone service up there, and called my parents in New Jersey, USA. I didn't know what to expect coming into this trip. I'm new to hiking but I love the outdoors. Our guides, Oscar and Holly, were extremely friendly, helpful, and professional throughout the whole trek, and really made the whole experience enjoyable. If I do another trip in Australia, I hope I get them as guides again.
