Okay gang, hold onto your hats! This is bound to be one of the biggest UQMC hikes yet!!

If you don’t know anything about it just type it into google images and prepare to have your socks blown off!
What: Overland Track
Where: Cradle Mountain NP, Tasmania
When: 22-29 Sept (we realise you may have exams on the 22nd so we are leaving at night)
Who: 12 UQMC members total
Length: Loooonnnngggg, it’s a 7 day completely unsupported hike. This means you must carry all your own food, water and first aid for seven days!
Trip Leader: Miranda
Trip Organiser: Alice
RSVP date: 11 September (your place is only secured once you’ve shown you’ve booked flights)
Please find the itinerary here. It’s got lots of useful information and some approximate costs too.
Also note, this is actually a pretty hard hike, although there are some board walk sections, most people at some point roll an ankle trying to walk down the steepest slope known to man, trying to negotiate moss covered tree roots and loose scree. If you’re not sure if you’re up to it just ask one of us 🙂 You must have been on multi-day hikes previously of at least 3 nights.
Gear can be loaned by the club.
