Mac posted an excellent overview on how to tramp one of our top 10 hikes in the world.

Overland

 PROS
  • Beautifully maintained track
  • Plenty of water available on the trail
  • Great side trips (Cradle Mountain, Hartnett Falls, the Acropolis)
  • Can stay as many days as you choose out on the track
  • Climb Mount Ossa, the highest peak in Tasmania (side trip)

CONS

  • Expensive – A$230
  • Bookings required October 1 to May 31
  • Crowded during the high season
  • Can only be hiked one direction
  • Leeches 

Based on Mac’s information, we’ve updated our Overland Track information page.

Mac actually liked Tasmania’s Western Arthur Traverse better than the Overland.
