If you have your own car or using a hire car we have developed an overland track self drive package to make it very easy and cost effective.

Whilst the Overland Track is 65km the drive around Cradle Mountain is 428km and takes 7 hours as the roads are very windy!


Parking your car at the end of the Overland Track at Lake St Clair is safe. You also have full flexibility when you want to finish walking the Overland Track.

We meet you at an agreed time and transfer you to
Sheffield Lodge in the town of Sheffield which is close to the start at Cradle Mountain.

Spend the night with us at Sheffield Lodge and then the next morning we transfer you to the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre.

The total cost is $460 for 1-2 persons and $540 for 3-4 persons. That includes one night accommodation with breakfast.

Park with us in Sheffield

You can also park at Sheffield Lodge which is a good option if you want more secure parking or in the winter when road conditions worsen. Sheffield is also very convenient if using the Spirit of Tasmania as we are only 25 minutes from the ferry terminal in Devonport.

The cost is the same and $460 for 1-2 persons and $540 for 3-4 persons. That includes one night accommodation with breakfast.

For this option we agree a date and time to pick you up at Lake St Clair and bring you back to Sheffield.

Stay 2 nights!

A very good value option for overland track parking is park with us at Sheffield and stay the night before and the night after.

We transfer you to the start and meet you at the end at Lake St Clair on a date and time that suits you.

The TOTAL cost is $540 for groups of 1 -2 persons and $660 for groups of 3 - 4 persons. A great deal!

During the winter period from June - September we can reverse the pick up and drop. This can be very useful if snow makes one of the two road not passable. The other big advantage of parking with us in the winter as often the police will only allow 4WDs with chains which of course we use.
