"We used Marie and David's Overland track transfer service over the new year's period. They were really friendly and helpful. It's a great option for getting to and from the Overland track." Trip Advisor: Angela 

"Marie and David provided a fantastic package for the Overland Track where my husband and I didn't have to do a thing but look forward to our long walk. We enjoyed easy pick up from Hobart airport and a great chat to John on the way to the lodge" Trip Advisor: Leatrice G 


"We are grateful to Hawthorn Lodge that when our Overland plans didn't go perfectly, they were able to fit us into their schedule like it was no trouble and help us with our change of plan. We hope to be able to stay at Hawthorn on our future round 2 of Overland. Trip advisor: Vanessa Dec 2019

"Lovely charming and warm house for our group of ten to base ourselves out of as we attempted the overland. Great hosts, amazing home cooked food, and very accommodating to our changing plans as weather changed our hiking trip. Thanks David and Marie" Trip advisor: 454brynd JULY 2010

Our Guests apprecriate our local knowledge

"We stayed as a package after our Overland Track hike. Marie picked us up from Lake at Clair. Both David and Marie were full of local knowledge and insights." Trip Advisor Louise Brown Kennett

"David and Marie were wonderful down to earth hosts preparing a beautiful true country feel and service that seriously gets missed in this day and age of business and main stream hotels. The pick up/drop off and transfers were personal with many local insights shared along the way." Trip Advisor: D.L 

Making it easy

"David at the Hawthorn Lodge made our Overland Track logistics so easy. He picked us up in Hobart at a place convenient for us. David then dropped us off at the beginning and picked us up exactly on time at the end." Trip Advisor: Furious Toast


Rest assured we will look after you!
