Located in Tasmania, many say this is Australia's most famous walk - a must do walk.

I have been there a few times now.  It can be walked comfortably in 5 days.  A friend, who owns the Sheffield Post Office in Tasmania has run it in a day.

It is a place of remarkable beauty. 

It is not too difficult to walk and a person of moderate fitness could complete the walk.  There are huts spaced between three and five hours walk apart.  They can get very crowded and a tent should be carried.  The best time to walk the track, I think, is February to April.

To give you a feel for what the place is like I have included three trip reports in my Trip Reports Page.   Trip reports are normally written for bushwalking club magazines

For information on how to get there and where to stay I suggest you visit my  my bushwalking links page, trip planning.   The National Parks and Wildlife Service home page is the best place to start.   There are also some excellent sites on accommodation.  This trip report includes information on where I stayed in Launceston and Hobart, travel arrangements, walking times etc.

An excellent publication to assist you in planning a trip is John Chapman's book - Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park.  The material in this is first class and is a great benefit.  Available at every Bushwalking Store I have been into.  John also has a web page. (See my trip planning section mentioned above for John's web site and click on Bushwalking Store to take you to my list of retailers.)

A friendly word of warning - be prepared.   Although the walk is relatively easy the weather can turn bad very quickly.  Take with you four season clothing and a snow grade sleeping bag, even in summer.  It rains more than it doesn't, even in the driest months of summer.  It gets very cold and regularly snows in summer.
