The Overland Track

March 03, 2016  •  2 Comments

Cradle Mountain is my favourite place in Tasmania, and for many years the Overland Track has been waiting on my bucket list. So as an early birthday present to myself, Piaf and I along with Ty, Tegan and Dave decided to hike the 80km track over 6 days carrying only what we needed to survive. The journey began at Dove Lake and up the steepest section of the track to Marions Lookout (1250m). From there onwards we soaked up the most amazing landscapes and were treated to perfect weather. The scenery kept changing and every track and forest was different. We were spoilt with spectacular sunsets, particularly at Kia Ora Hut, and the stars weren’t afraid to light up the night sky. We climbed the highest point in Tasmania (Mount Ossa) and witnessed clear 360 degree views. There are Huts along the way that offer cozy shelter, although we enjoyed sleeping in our tents and listening to Tasmanian Devils at night sniffing through the 1mm tent fabric trying to determine whether we were food. I hope my images inspire you to add this beautiful part of the world to your bucket list, or your lounge room wall as a 24x36 inch canvas print J

Made it!!!! It's been less than a week since we've been back, and already I can't wait to walk The Overland again...
