Logistics Planner

Planning/Logistics: Once you have your Overland Track Pass booked, are you not sure what happens next? Our Logistics Planner will make sure that you have everything covered from you Itinerary, Flights, Accommodation, Transport, and Ferry bookings.

You can work your way through from the top or tick them off as you have them completed but by following this planner you will be sure you haven’t forgotten anything and everything is in place for your trip.

Be sure to book as much as you can, as early as you can. Once things are booked out, your options become a lot more limited and more expensive (think flights, accommodation etc) so best to book everything in once you have your Overland Track Pass booked in and you know your start date.

Booking your Overland Track Pass

Book your Overland Track pass with Tas Parks and Wildlife. Bookings are for your start day and there is no limit on the number of days you spend on the Overland Track.

Bonus Tip

Now is the time to get the old trusty boots out of the cupboard or time to go and purchase new boots. The more hours you get into them now, the better they will be. Old boots can suffer from sole delimitation once they get wet, so be sure to test them in the rain before arriving into Tassie.
