The Overland Track in Australia is estimated to be 40 miles (65 kilometers) long, and takes 3 days* to complete when hiking at an average of 15 miles (25 kilometers) per day.
It is a linear trail, which means that to do a thru hike, you will have to start and end your hike in different places.
The Overland Track has 2 terminuses. Most thruhikers choose to start their hike at the Southern Terminus in Lake St Clair, Tasmania, Australia and end their hike at the Ronny Creek Carpark in Cradle Mountain, Tasmania, Australia.
A good day of the year to start this hike from the Southern Terminus is December 1.
The Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service takes on the task of maintaining, improving, and advocating for the Overland Track as its trail association.
