You can reach Marie by email with the details of when you plan to do the Overland Track at: marie@hawthornlodge.com.au

We’re happy to answer any questions and advise you on permit booking.

You’ll need to book a permit if you are doing the hike between 1 October and 31 May. This is easily done online with the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service. Bookings open on the 1st July.

We do encourage you to book with us before the 1st July, as we tend to sell out various dates very quickly. If you find that the Overland Track Permit date you want is not available, we’ll be happy to amend your booking. We do suggest being quick to book your permit on the 1st July, as demand for peak dates will be very high.

We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you on your Overland Track experience!

Overland Track Equipment Hire

Like to travel light? We’ve got what you need. We stock a wide range of tents, rucksacks and other useful items, available for hire at great rates. This proves very popular and can save a lot of the hassle in having to bring these with you. Feel free to contact us and discuss your needs.

 

Overland Track Supplies

We stock camping gas and happy for supplies to be delivered before you arrive.

 

Hobart as the best entry point

We favour operating from Hobart, as there are more frequent and cost-efficient flights from various locations. The journey from Launceston to Cradle Mountain is slightly shorter, but we can still reach it by 10.15 – even after you’ve taken good time for a great breakfast with our home-made jams and bread! The return trip is shorter this way, which we believe works better for you as you’ll be looking forward to a shower and resting no doubt!

Many of our guests stay on in Hobart for an extra day after their hike, taking time to enjoy all that Hobart has to offer, including MONA and the various award-winning restaurants. If you’d prefer to explore Hobart at the beginning of your trip, perhaps arrange to arrive on an early flight into Hobart airport, where you can take the bus into town and we’ll pick you in the late afternoon.

It’s your call – we’re here to facilitate and cater to your adventure!
