Walking the Overland Track (through the Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park) in the days before wooden duckboards over boggy patches and commercial guided walks was a rough and ready experience at times. The Overland Track was renowned for knee deep trudging through mud, extremely basic and often overcrowded huts, and instances of bad behaviour from fellow walkers.

So popular is the Overland Track today that it's necessary to make a booking to reduce the overcrowding factor and maintain the so-called 'wilderness' experience. Click here to see the illustrated account of our walk. Tasmania_Pedder-Cradle_11-4-15_Preview_Quartz__Reduce.pdf
