#4 of 8 in Outdoors in Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park
Hiking Trail · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
The Overland Track takes you through an ever-changing glacier-carved landscape of sheer mountains, beech and eucalypts forests, alpine plains, wild rivers, lakes, and waterfalls. Listed as one of Australia's most popular walks--world famous for its pristine beauty--the track varies in difficulty and can be quite of a challenge due to rapid weather changes. Many huts along the way provide shelter and offer overnight stay. Stretching from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair, this 65 km (40 mi) track can take six days to complete. Do your homework, pack necessary equipment, and consider hiring a guide if you don't feel confident enough to do this undertaking on your own. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair National Park holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the The Overland Track and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
