Cape Hauy Walk

Silke, Jeremy, Melanie, Julie and Jonas walked to Cape Hauy. The track leads from Fortescue Bay, just near the boat ramp. The walk passes through a variety of heath and woodland before coming to the magnificent views of steep cliffs and rock formations.

The spectacular dolerite columns, cliffs, sea stacks, the “Candlestick” and “Totem Pole” at Cape Hauy are the highlights of this 9K walk!

Overland Track

Julie, Melanie & Jonas hiked The Overland Track. It’s Australia’s premier alpine walk. A 82 km, 5-day trek through the heart of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, part of the magnificent Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The stunning scenery and the physical challenge of the Overland Track have assured it a national and international reputation as one of the great wilderness bushwalks.

The walk starts at Ronny Creek in Cradle Valley, beside the renowned Cradle Mountain. Over the next 5 days, Julie, Melanie & Jonas journey through a landscape of spectacular gla­cially-carved valleys, ancient rainforests, fragrant eucalypt forest, golden buttongrass moorlands and beautiful alpine meadows. Extra bonuses include a variety of side-trips to breathtaking waterfalls and mountain summits, including Mt Ossa (1617 m) – Tasmania’s highest peak. To top it off, the walk concludes at Australia’s deepest lake – Lake St Clair.
