Andrew and Sean have been lifelong best friends, hailing from Tasmania, just an hour’s drive from Cradle Mountain. From a young age, they bonded over their shared love for bushwalking and exploring Tasmania’s magnificent wilderness. In 1995 when, at the age of just 16, they embarked on their first Overland Track adventure alone together. Since then, for nearly three decades, they have extensively explored the Overland Track and the Cradle Mountain/Lake St Clair National Park in all seasons.

Overland Track Transport originated in 2017 when owners Andrew and Sean, having completed their annual Overland Track crossing the previous year, found themselves once again at Lake St Clair. They discovered a lack of regular bus services back to Launceston and only four morning services a week to Hobart. “You know what we should do?” one said to the other. “Start a service that helps people to get to and from the Overland Track,” they agreed. Their vision? A reliable, flexible, affordable, and informative service that encompassed all the elements they would desire from a transfer company if they were clients themselves. From the convenience of purchasing fuel and other essentials to the availability of specialized gear for the rugged conditions, along with luggage storage facilities and knowledgeable drivers well-versed in the nuances of the Overland Track. Thus, Overland Track Transport was born. Since its inception, the company has traversed over 1 million kilometers, assisting adventurers from both near and far with their logistics and transportation needs, ensuring they make the most of their Overland Track experience.

Since 2017, our team of drivers has expanded to include Overland Track guides, volunteers, outdoor educators, outdoor gear geeks, and simply some of the most remarkable people you’ll ever find.
