The Overland Track

The Overland Track

The Overland Track

Travel through the heart of Tasmania’s World Heritage-listed wilderness on this famous 65-kilometre trek from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair. Walk the entire Overland Track in six days or do short and day walks from the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre and Dove Lake. Remember the end-to-end walk requires planning. You’ll need to book in advance with Tasmania’s Parks & Wildlife Service and take with you a good tent and warm sleeping bag. While the route has eight basic stove-heated huts, there’s no guarantee of space. The best time to walk the track is between November and April, when the weather is milder and days are longer for Daylight Saving. During April, you can see the spectacular changing colours of the deciduous beech. As well as a physical challenge, this walk is a true communion with nature. You’ll see lakes, forests and gorges, mountains and moors, spectacular waterfalls and steep, stony peaks.

The Tasmanian Devil

The Tasmanian Devil

The Tasmanian Devil

The Tasmanian devil is a carnivorous marsupial with the appearance of a small, stocky dog. It has a broad head, thick tail and coarse, black fur. The Tasmanian devil was given its common name by early European settlers, who were haunted at night by its screeches and demonic growls. Despite its appearance and reputation, the Tasmanian devil is actually a shy creature. It is the world’s largest carnivorous marsupial since the Tasmanian tiger became extinct in 1936. Since 1995 Tasmanian devils have been ravaged by devil facial tumour disease, and as a result are now a protected species. See them in wildlife parks in Tasmania, such as Taranna on the Tasman Peninsula.

Tasmanian Honey Company

25A Main Road, North - Northeast,
Perth, Tasmania 7300

The Tasmanian Honey Company offer free tastings and factory pricing in Perth, Northern Tasmania. The Tasmanian Honey Company began in 1978 as the concept of Julian Wolfhagen, a beekeeper with a profound passion for Tasmania, its wild forests and the honey that they produce. Today Julian employs more than a dozen staff and exports pure, beautifully packaged honey right around the world. The Tasmanian Honey Company's success has largely been built on a passion for, and a commitment to the production of wild and uncompromised leatherwood honey, which they like to think of as the distillate of the wilderness. Julian was involved with bees as a child, however a re-acquaintance with bees and honey via a good bottle of mead shared around the fire on a cold winters night, planted an inspirational seed that was to grow into what is now the Tasmanian Honey Company. The business has thrived ever since. Perth is a 17 minute drive (18 kilometres/11 miles) South of Launceston.

Lady Franklin Gallery and Ancanthe Park

Lenah Valley Road, South,
Hobart, Tasmania 7008

Lady Franklin Gallery, situated in Tasmania's capital Hobart, was built in 1842. This gallery in the Hobart suburb of Lenah Valley was built by Lady Jane Franklin, wife of Sir John Franklin, who was governor of Tasmania at the time. The building fell into neglect after the Franklins departure in 1843 but was resuscitated in 1948 by the Art Society of Tasmania, which now runs it as a gallery for the display of paintings by leading Tasmanian artists, and to house a library of art books. Lady Jane and Sir John Franklin purchased 410 acres of land at Ancanthe, including 10 acres of garden and later 400 acres of working farm land adjacent. It now consists of merely four acres with the park providing the community with a unique environment to enjoy its winding paths and grassy embankments, while surrounded by the native wilderness and its wildlife.

Cockle Creek/South West National Park

C636, South,
Cockle Creek, Tasmania 7109

Cockle Creek is a tiny seaside settlement on the edge of Tasmania’s Southwest national park. Cockle Creek is two hours’ drive south of Hobart (148 kilometres/92 miles) via Geeveston. Sheltered among the tranquil coves of Recherche Bay, Cockle Creek has campsites and basic facilities, and there are a number of excellent walks. A short stroll around the foreshore takes you to a whale sculpture and interpretation sign explaining the bay’s whaling history. Continue to the Fishers Point Navigation Light and Pilot Station Ruins, or take the well-marked track to South East Cape for stunning cliff-top views of the Southern Ocean and Maatsuyker Island. Cockle Creek was once a thriving settlement of over 2,000 people. The area’s rich human history is reflected in Aboriginal sites, abandoned tramways, gravestones and ruins. This is the entry point to the Southwest national park, in Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area. The South Coast Track – one of Tasmania’s great bushwalks, begins (or ends) here. French explorer, Bruni D'Entrecasteaux sailed into Recherche Bay in 1792 on a botanical expedition. The remains of a garden planted by the French were found here in 2003, resulting in the creation of a reserve to protect the area. Current park passes must be purchased for entry to Tasmania's national parks. For full details please visit the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife website.
