Cannot fault this trip or the company who runs it. It was an adventure of a lifetime. Had no idea Tasmania was so incredibly beautiful. We had all seasons in 6 days so the gear list and gear provided was spot on.
The only fault I could say was my own. By overpacking I caused unnecessary stress on my joints. The track is variable and has a lot of tree roots to navigate through. This is very hard on joints so don't forget the poles.
Our guides were fantastic, informative, well trained and great company. The cosy, clean, warm huts are a welcome sight at the end of the day. The hot shower, comfortable bed, delicious meals (pizzas were a favourite and we all want the recipe for that garlic bread) outstanding Tazzy wines, with a book or board game (and dry shoes/clothes the next day) will make you truly grateful.
Don't underestimate this track. At the time I was not a regular hiker with an average fitness level so I would highly recommend joining a hiking club for an accurate perspective of what to expect from a full day of hiking. (Plus a wealth of knowledge from experienced hikers)
From wide open spaces, to Mountains to what reminded me of Lord of the Rings forests this landscape is exceptional. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
