Cradle Mountain walk – do the Overland Track in style

24 March 2011 No Comment

Cradle Mountain hike with Barn BluffIf you are looking for more than just a day walking adventure at Cradle Mountain then have you considered the Overland Track?

Many adventurers tackle the Track independently but for those who are nervous, on their first big hike or just want a few comforts from home, a guided adventure is a fantastic option.

Hiking with Cradle Mountain Huts is one way to enjoy this fabulous six-day walk in Tasmania’s World Heritage Area. Classified as one of the top 10 hikes in the world, the famous Overland Track extends from Cradle Valley to Lake St. Clair. One reason this trek is so special is that it travels through a variety of spectacular landscapes.

Cradle Mountain – Lake St. Clair is 161,204 hectares of World Heritage wilderness, a pristine and prized environment.  This extraordinary place  features a huge diversity of flora and fauna;  glacial lakes, rainforests,  and craggy peaks, sit side by side with wombats, echidnas, wallabies and Tasmanian devils all making this their home.

Each evening’s accommodation is in one of five private huts nestled away in this remarkable park. Just off the Overland Track, each hut is a haven to retreat to at the end of the day and features hot showers, potbelly heater and twin-share rooms with comfortable beds.  A hearty three-course dinner is prepared by your guides, with fine Tasmanian wine and cheerful conversation a very pleasant way to relax. There is no “roughing it” on this adventure!

The huts have been designed to be ecologically sustainable, with non-polluting, self-contained services and careful waste management practices. This minimal impact means that the values of this fragile environment are preserved for the future whilst enabling it to be enjoyed today by a small number of people.
