Making the Overland Track Easy

Our popular “making it easy” package provides all you need for a round trip from Hobart or Hobart Airport. And is very cost effective.

• Pick up at Hobart Airport or Hobart
• Accommodation with dinner & breakfast at Hawthorn Lodge for first night
• Transfer to start of Overland Track
• Meet with items you need and transfer at the end of the Overland Track & complimentary drink
• Accommodation with dinner & breakfast at Hawthorn Lodge after completion of the walk
• Transfer to Hobart or Hobart Airport
• Baggage storage
• Emergency contact

This full package is designed to make it all very easy. We pick you up in Hobart or Hobart Airport and transfer you to Hawthorn Lodge. From Hobart, 45 minutes along the scenic Derwent Valley to the village of Bushy Park.  We can stop at Woolworths in New Norfolk if you need to buy provisions and at Anaconda if you need any last minute camping supplies.  Enjoy our hospitality and dinner. We then depart at 7am (or earlier if you would like) to the start at Cradle Mountain driving along the scenic  roads of the Central Highlands passing the Great Lake. We aim to arrive about 10.15am.

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.

With our arrival time at 10.15 you have plenty of time for a “last stop coffee” and time to reach the summit of Cradle Mountain if you intend to do that.

We agree how long you want to take. The normal is 5 – 6 nights but can be shorter if you want longer walking days and for runners you might just want one night. Our Overland Track Transport team will be there to meet you at Lake St Clair with any fresh clothes and luxuries you leave with us.

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.

We normally pick up at 2.30pm to allow you time to have a coffee, or drink or just relax at the visitor centre. If you are not able to book the 1pm ferry we are able to meet another Lake St Clair Ferry.

We then travel 90 minutes to Hawthorn Lodge to relax, hot showers and enjoy our famous walkers dinner. The next morning we transfer you to Hobart or Hobart airport.

We will store any valuables and good clothes. We can hire out some of the essentials such as a tent if you do not have.

Accommodation is based on the use of a shared bathroom, upgrades to en suite are available. Rooms are shared in the best combination.

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.
