We've just returned from a very challenging but well supported hike along the Overland track. We felt grateful to have had the hard-working and good natured Caitlin and Mitch as our guides. They were pretty good at turning out some great food too. Our group was incredibly diverse, yet easy to live and walk with this past week. We finished our Tassie experience at the Pumphouse, Lake St Clair, which, though wonderful, made us miss ...

What an amazing experience, walking for 6 days in the wilderness. It is hard adjusting back to normal life in this parallel universe. Knowing that this year I was turning 64, and travelling solo, committing to the walk was harder than the walk. I am so glad I did, and I am glad I trained for it, although suburban streets do not prepare you for the natural parts of the track, the rocky water courses, ...

Have done lots of walking overseas and wanted to do this walk before we got too old. An amazing experience thanks to Dayna & Declan (guides). Their knowledge, fitness, and caring support (slight melt down halfway up OSSA by moi - but I made it!) was amazing. Their banter & humour was so funny too. Had the best weather. For someone with a dodgy back the attention to pack positioning was much appreciated. One of ...

Hi Everyone, My trip to walk the Overland Track. The Overland Track Walk was absolutely amazing, the best and most challenging thing I have ever done and just like being in another world. Maybe it was a sample of heaven because I cannot imagine anything better! Had I known the degree of challenge that was before me I may have thought I was not capable of achieving it, but I am really glad I did ...

I was introduced to true nature and wilderness. With no telephone or e - mail access the experience was so much more rewarding and precious. I was fortunate enough to be escorted by two of the best guides I have ever had - Tom Keith and Emily Johnston. The guys were so knowledgeable about every aspect of our journey - the flora, the fauna, the people that opened up this magnificent part of the world ...

My husband and I really enjoyed our 6 day Overland track walk to mark my 50th birthday. Although reasonably fit I set off with some trepidation about how we would cope with the weather and track conditions. As it turned out we had the best weather - mostly warm (high 15) with clear blue skies (and consequent crisp frosty mornings). We did have half a day of snow and rain. Lunch at Mt Doris whilst ...

On top of the world (Mount Ossa with snow) We have just completed the most amazing 6 day Overland Adventure Walk. To say it was spectacularly beautiful and constantly changing is to underestimate the experience. I was lucky enough to complete the walk with ...
