1. Bushwalking Tasmanian Style – the Overland Track
Travel trips in Tasmania are full of fun. For the experienced trekking die-hards, Australia offers many exciting treks but nothing can beat the six day hiking experience (65km) from the north’s Cradle Valley to Lake St Clair down south. Breathtaking scenery is what traveling in Tasmania is all about and with spectacular mountains as a backdrop, you will venture through eucalyptus forests teeming with unique wildlife, valleys and across wide open moors. This popular hike during summer (December to April) offers more daylight hours and shows of alpine flowers en route. Walkers must register at the start and finish.
