This was my second trip down the Overland track. It is a trip done in late January/early February of 1999. With my mates, Beaui (first real bush walk) and Beggsy, we headed down the Overland track for a quick 3 nighter. Beaui was a bit of a novice and wore his 1984 green and gold tracksuit! He also kept producing fresh sandwiches the entire trip from tupperware containers. His mum had made all of these for him prior to departure. A very entertaining trip!

Day 2 - Waterfall Valley to New Pelion

Day 3 - New Pelion to Windy Ridge (including side trip up Mt Ossa in thick mist)

My name’s Matthew but like all of my friends you can call me Mowser. I grew up in Tassie and love everything about the place. The hiking in Tasmania is incredible.  I’ve been wandering around the mountains of the island state for over 20 years. In 2018 I made a resolution to write about it as well as publish all of the photos I have taken over the years . It’s taken a while and I now make every effort to write about every trip I go on. I travel and hike regularly – be it day walks or for a week or more. I also write about my various travels in and outside of Australia with my wife and four kids. I hope you enjoy….
