The Overland Track is probably the most profound way to explore the wilds of Tasmania. The Tasmanian Wildlife Service only allows about 30 hikers per day. 6 days on the way.

You know that: You wake up in the morning, it's freezing cold outside and you're still lying under your cuddly, warm blanket.
