People travel from all over the world to walk the Overland Track in Tasmania. It is one of the most sought after walks on everyone's 'To do list' among the hiking world. The 5 night and 6 day walking journey takes you through some of Tasmania's most rugged wilderness.

The cold zapped the power out of my phone and my back up charger went from 100% to 0% within 10 minutes. In the morning when I woke the conditions were worse and visibility was very minimal, not being able to see ahead to the next post where to walk due to the thick fog and the blinding snow. I had heard there were going to be 10 foot snow drops ahead and conditions over the next 48 hours worsening.

What a brilliant four days spent in southern Tasmania surrounded by beautiful capes, mountains, oceans, great people and fabulous accommodation. So far to date it would have to be one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about doing it. You're never too young or too old, too unfit or too busy.

Cockle Creek to South Cape Rivulet walk is a more challenging walk so you might want to bring your overnight pack. This walk is a four hour round trip but if you're planning to stay overnight allow yourself three hours in and three hours back due to the extra weight of your pack you will be carrying. The track begins to the right after you cross over Cockle Creek Bridge.  It's a flat walk to start with but turns into some steep climbs over hills and cliff tops.

The Cascade track which is a very easy, flat walk only takes 40 minutes to reach the end. From here if you're feeling brave you can continue onto the Myrtle Gully walk. The Myrtle Gully route is a medium to difficult walk with a lot of steep hills to climb. If you didn't think you had glute muscles you will soon realise they're there!! The pain will be worth it when you see the amazing waterfalls along the way.

Today I decided to go exploring and find more hidden treasures Tasmania has to hide so I headed up Mount Wellington and did the Organ Pipes Track. This track is a round circuit, half way you will stumble upon the treasure trove of dolerite columns that majestically soar up into the heavens!!

A fantastic Winter wonderland walk through a snow caped rainforest!!  I think the pictures will speak for themselves on this one. I highly recommend doing this walk in the winter when it's snowing because it's all the more beautiful.

Recently I've been fascinated about this 'disappearing tarn' that everyone has been talking about! So today was the day I set out on a quest to find it, mission successful. Who would have thought that in the middle of nowhere there is a little pool of blue, not made man but as pure and natural as it gets.

Today I did a solo walk within the Mount Wellington area. It was a slightly longer walk today but VERY BEAUTIFUL.  I defiantly have a new favourite walk now!  The view at the lookout was gob smacking and magical. The photos don't do it justice at all. The whole walk was filled with smaller falls, spectacular views of the valleys below and in the distance Cathedral Rock.

One of my favourite short walks is the Lenah Valley Track. It takes approx 1 hour and 20 minutes return. It's an easy to medium walk. It begins at the top of Lenah Valley Road at the car park. A very pretty walk which leads you to a beautiful waterfall. From the moment you step foot out of the car you are surrounded by running streams and refreshing smells of gum trees.

It felt great to get back into the bush yesterday - a new day and a new mountain to climb, Mount Misery. It was a good solid 3 hour walk and we made sure to include a side detour down to Hidden Falls which isn't far from the start of the Mount Misery trail.

It could be quite easy to get lost in the 'Lost World' with its unruly track of overgrown shrubs and boulders, but if you like climbing over rocks and large boulders like I do this short walk is for you!!The scenery at the end of the track was magnificent and makes this upper and lower body work out worthwhile.

Today we jumped in the car and headed down the southern outlet for a walk at Pelverata Falls. The walk was nice, but probably not one of my favourites. Due to the time of year, and lack of rain, the falls were dry but it would be quite spectacular in the wetter months.

This walk is a nice short walk of only 1 hour 20 minutes return. The first 20 minutes of the track if VERY steep and is of medium difficulty but the remainder of the track is relatively easy. You will come to a cross roads where as it will have to the left a sign saying 'Radford Track' don't take this turn, continue down to the right. You will pass a monument and soon after hit back down to the road, continue down the road and you will arrive back to the Tavern.

The Truganini track was named after the last full blooded Tasmanian Aborigine. The walk was a moderately steep and somewhat muddy climb to the top but was well rewarded at the Mount Nelson Signal Station Cafe where we sat outside on the comfy bean bags and had a coffee admiring the views over the Derwent River before making our way back down to the car.
