Overland Track - Feb 1999

Updated: Feb 24, 2019

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 1 - Waldheim to Waterfall Valley

Day 2 - Waterfall Valley to New Pelion

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

Day 4 - Windy Ridge to Narcissus and ferry out, then back to Launceston.

About Me

My name's Matthew but my friends call me Mowser.


I've lived in Tasmania, Australia my entire life. I love the place and I love hiking. I believe Tassie has some of the best hiking/bushwalking in the world. I like to share this fact with my wife and four kids as well as our many friends by revealing to them this amazing landscape and what it has to offer.

I also like tech and hiking gear.

I created this site, to share my love of Tasmania, hiking and the gear required to complete my adventures. If you can't get to these places yourself then I hope this site provides you with some inspiration for what the Tasmanian Wilderness has to offer - It really is an incredible place! Enjoy!
