Officially, the track runs for 65 kilometers from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair, however many choose to add the stretch along Lake St Clair as a natural extension, thus reaching an overall length of 82 kilometers.

The trail winds its way through terrain that ranges from steep mountains to the temperate rainforest, wild rivers, and alpine plains, all located in the World Heritage area of Tasmania. In addition to the main track, there are also several alternative side runs, including the peaks of Cradle Mountain and Mount Ossa, Tasmania’s highest mountain. Famous around the world for its pristine environment and beauty, the walk is listed by Lonely Planet, the world’s largest travel guide publishing house, as one of the best in the world, while CNN Travel has defined as the number one excursion in Australia. Overland Track in Australia Europeans first explored Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair in the 1820s and continued into the 20th century. The climate here is generally unstable, characterized by high temperatures in summer and below freezing in winter, and by very common rain and snow. The fauna includes possums, wombats, echidnas, Tasmanian devils, and small rodents, while the vegetation consists of forests of beech, eucalyptus, shrubs, and mosses. The walk is undemanding, provided hikers are properly prepared with the necessary equipment, and is usually completed in five or six days. Besides, the track has many huts, which allow visitors to stay overnight in comfort, and then resume walking the next day. An experience absolutely to try.
