#10 – Overland Track, Australia

Tasmania’s Overland Track is one of our top 10 hikes in the world.

Why?

Our favourite multi-day tramp in Australia. 😎

  • 8000-9000 walkers / year
  • 60 walkers start / day in high season
  • Oct 1 – May 31 Overland Track Pass reservations online
  • access by public transportation
  • easy-moderate hiking IF the weather cooperates
  • add challenging sidetrip peak scrambles if the weather is good
  • Nov – early May best months
