Cradle Mountain & Overland Track

Walking Tours

Part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Cradle Mountain forms the northern end of the Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park. The area is one of the most popular places for walkers and trekkers visiting Tasmania as it is the starting point for the Overland Track, one of Australia’s most famous walking experiences.

Australia’s most iconic ‘bushwalk’ Whether you’re from the mainland of Australia, further afield or even lucky enough to live in Tasmania, walking this classic Tasmanian trek in the Cradle Mountain National Park is a walking experience every hiker should undertake.

The Overland Track attracts many walkers each year and thanks to the graded trail it is protected from the impact of the many feet that walk it each season. The Overland Track’s graded trail also makes it ideal for first time bushwalkers.

Summer or winter, camping or huts, guided or self guided - with Tasmanian Expeditions you can choose to walk the Overland Track exactly the way you want.

Cradle Mountain walking tours – the widest range of walks

Each of our walks in the Cradle Mountain region, from the dolerite crags of Cradle Mt to the rainforest-clad shores of Lake St. Clair, is led by a passionate, experienced, first aid trained wilderness guide who will help to bring The Overland Track to life. Our guides will also share their local knowledge & enthusiasm for this special part of the Tasmanian wilderness. Every walking guide doubles as a seasoned wilderness chef, so if you’re planning to walk in Cradle Mountain to lose some weight you may want to think again!

Our company first offered the Overland Track back in the late 60’s as Craclair. Today, we offer a range of options to suit many different fitness levels and budgets, including:
