We recently walked the Overland Track unguided and used this company to get us there and back from Launceston. The driver Phil was very friendly and professional, the small bus was comfortable and clean and I was able to charge my phone during the trip....More
This is such a great service that makes getting to and from the Overland Track so much easier to organize. All of the guys from Overland Track Transport are super helpful with advice and go out of their way to help any way they can. Can't recommend this service highly enough!
Overland Track Transport is a reliable, well-organised and very friendly company whose focus is on getting walking parties to Cradle Mountain to start the Overland Track and picking these parties up at Lake St Clair and getting them back to Launceston or Hobart at the conclusion of the walk. Their experience is telling - they are bushwalkers so they understand your needs. The drivers have done the track, so they can give you great advice. They'll pick up parties in Launceston from wherever you're staying and, for our group, they were more than willing to accommodate a special request drop-off location when we returned to Launceston.
Useful information -
1. On the way to Cradle Mountain they stop at a bakery in Sheffield. If you're not an early morning breakfast person, this a great opportunity to get coffee and cake. You can also buy sandwiches and sweeties for lunch on the track. This makes planning just that little bit easier.
2. In addition to transport, they also have a number of very useful items for sale including the gas canisters you can't transport on the plane. Prices for these items are the same as you would pay at a shop, except they are delivered to you personally. No profiteering (thank you OTT!).
A company to be highly recommended. Bushwalkers helping bushwalkers. Right attitude. Fair prices.
