What to do with a free week off work? How about hiking the Overland Track in Tassie with a full trek pack? No worries mate! So I decided to join one of the Tasmanian Expeditions trips - 6 full days covering approx 70 kms. We had everything thrown at us weather wise - sun, rain, hail, wind, sleet; sometimes all in the space of an hour! Didn't get a chance to take many photos as every turn in the trail was gobsmackingly beautiful, and I couldn't hope to capture what I was experiencing and seeing. I know that people's opinions are polarised about the boardwalks spoiling the walk, however I don't see how else you can minimise the impact of walkers in such a pristine environment. I had an amazing adventure with a diversity of dramatic landscapes, excellent guides (who fed us too well!), and an intrepid bunch of fellow adventurers. The Overland Track is truly one of the iconic and magical walks of the world; right in our backyard.
