Accommodation | An activity that involves an overnight stay, using hard-roofed accommodation such as a cabin, hut or hotel.Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) Cradle Mountain to Lake St. Clair. Arguably Australia's premier long-distance walk, The Overland Track is undoubtedly a walk of superlatives, not the least being the supremely beautiful landscape you travel through from Cradle Mountain all the way down south to Lake St. Clair. On this trip I plan to do several side trips (optional), including climbing Barn Bluff, Mt Oakleigh, Mt Ossa, as well as visiting the Labyrinth. The cost of the walk is $200 and you have the option of staying in the huts along the way, open to availability, but you do have to carry a tent or arrange to share with another. We will get picked up in Launceston and taken to the walk start and again at the finish of the walk will get transported from Cynthia Bay back to Hobart. 4 seasons in one day is Tassies mantra so expect any sort of climatic conditions.

Grade:4/6 Length 21km  700m Southern Sydney Branch
Geoffrey.L
Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or longPublic Transport | There are public transport options to and from this activity.The walk from Cowan to Brooklyn is a very popular walk. The nearby walk to Taffys Rock leaves the main track, and is much more secluded, with better views. The walk is good in winter as it mainly follows ridges, and is reasonably exposed to the sun. The track is well marked as far as the turnoff to Taffys Rock. From there it is likely to be marked by cairns, but there are no official markers, Steep and Slippery sections. Some clambering
