Thinking of Walking Tassie?

I found these links useful when planning our trip to Tassie... for a general overview of Tassie as well as pdf brochures about the Great Walks and other activities. for specific info about the national parks (1/5 of Tassie are national parks) including entry fees and bookings. for forest walks e.g. the Teepookana Huon Pine Experience, Tahune Forest AirWalk and Dismal Swamp. for accommodation ideas. Beware that this is actually a site run by The Federal Group which, despite the name, is a private company which owns the 5 resorts suggested here.

If you're looking to visit Cradle Mountain, you can't go past the Cradle Mountain Lodge for accommodation (way better than the Chateau mentioned in the Pure Tasmania website with comparable pricing). Service was exceptional - pub was opened at 4am so we could watch the soccer, with complimentary hot chocolate. It's run by Voyages which has some AMAZING resorts around Australia.

For a more budget option check out the Waldheim Cabins run by Parks & Wildlife Service. They have the advantage of being the closest accommodation to the start of the Overland Track, right on top of the Ronny Creek carpark.
