Overland Track 25-30 September

Postby tassieexpat84 » Thu 31 Aug, 2017 4:38 pm

Hi there.

I'm looking for bushwalking companions for the end of September (25-30) to do Overland Track, with a possible side trip to the Labyrinth, depending on time, weather and motivation. I'm coming from Melbourne (but I am Tasmanian) and will be in the state between the 24th of Sept and 2nd of Oct. I'm a easy going 35 yo male primary teacher on school holidays. I've done the South Coast Track and various other multi day walks in Tassie. Most of my family lives in Tassie, so we will have transport to drop us off and pick us up. I'd put up a post before (about 3 months ago) which might have been jumping the gun a little bit! Apologies to those people who posted but had to wait so long for a reply - if you're still available, give me a yell. Also, I'm going to be doing the Western Arthurs in December if anyone is interested in that one.

Hope to hear from you.

Kind regards.

Dear will,
I'm still thinking about whether these dates will work for me. Can you explain your plans a bit more ie. R u flying to Hobart or Launceston? What date and from where r u getting a lift to start walk? Could I fly down on 25.9 or would it have to be 24th or 23rd? Would your family also be cajoled into picking us up from end and ? Dropping at airport?
More details please

Hi Will,

I am a 30yo go with the flow female currently in NSW and interested in backpacking the Overland Track. My schedule is highly flexible and can fit to yours. Are you still looking for a walking companion or companions? I have a backpack, sleeping bag, emergency bivy, first aid kit and warm layers, but no tent. Do you have a tent, and if so, would you be willing to share if needed?
