We are able to offer a range of other overland track transfers and overland track transport for any sized group. Please contact us with ypour needs and we will be pleased to advise.

 Why Hobart as the arrival point for the overland track?

Hobart has many advantages over Launceston as the entry point for the an overland track transfer and staying with us at Hawthorn Lodge makes it even better why:

√ Hobart has many more flights and often much cheaper including more low cost airlines

√ Hawthorn Lodge is much closer to the end of the overland track making for a short drive once all done giving plenty of time to walk on the last day and celebrate in the evening

If you want a late afternoon pick up at Lake St Clair no problem

√ Hobart has much to offer if you extend for a few days after the track

√ Arrive on an early flight enjoy the day in Hobart or at MONA and we will transfer you to Hawthorn Lodge in the early evening

√ The morning transfer to Cradle Mountain provides a very scenic drive through the middle of Tasmania passing the Great Lake and arrives at 10.30 am (and that includes a coffee stop)t or Hobart Airport

Overland Track Baggage Storage

 Overland Track Information

 

Overland Track Information

As passionate walkers and cross country runners we very much enjoy sharing this great Tasmanian experience with others. The Overland Track Tasmania is a point to  point walk which creates the hassle of having a drop off and pick up and managing transport and baggage not needed on the Overland Track.

The Overland Track is very well organised with numerous huts with National Park Rangers available along the track to help with an emergencies. You do not need guides for the Overland Track and easy to do as a self guided walk. You need to book a starting date slot with Tasmania National Parks and easy to do online. If not sure ask us.

Once we reach Cradle Mountain we will drop you at the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre to register for the Overland Track. (Permits you must have obtained yourself beforehand and easy to do online). From here a shuttle bus takes you to the start at Ronny Creek.

If you are taking the Overland Track Ferry run by Lake St Clair Lodge this must be booked. We suggest the 1pm ferry. If you are not using the Lake St Clair Ferry the walk along the lake is 17km and means you will arrive around 1.30pm.
