Congratulations, you have conquered the Overland Track and had the time of your life.  Your feet are sore, you don’t want to see another dehydrated meal for some time, your pack has simply become an extension of your body and you have been thinking about your favorite food now for 3 days and how much you are going to enjoy it when you arrive back to the “real world”. You have found a calming satisfaction from being completely “disconnected” from your phone and emails for a week and hesitate to turn it back on (if only to let your Mum know you are alive and well).

Our regular passenger service from Lake St Clair to Hobart departs the Lake St Clair car park at the Visitor Centre at 2:00pm.  Our driver will have on board any luggage that you have stored with us for the time of your adventure, so you can have a clean t-shirt and footwear that doesn’t require gaiters over the top (Lake St Clair Visitor Centre has a free 5 minute shower available for bushwalkers). This is also where you can return any hire gear you have booked with us for your trip.  Lake St Clair lodge also has a licenced bar and meals available including hot chips to die for.

We make our way to Hobart via Tarraleah (built in the 1930’s by the Hydro Electric Commission) and Ouse where we can stop for a brief toilet break and something to eat, before making our way through New Norfolk (on the Derwent River) and then into Hobart where we will drop you off to your central accommodation from 5:15pm.

All of our drivers are locals so we will happily advise you on the best places in town to get the meal of your choice and the best bars to go and have your celebratory drink.
