After initially planning to self drive and realising this was difficult to do, I booked with Overland Track Transport. Detailed information before the day of pick up was really useful. It was so handy being picked up from accommodation, with our purchased gear on board also, and Andrew was fabulous on the trip to Cradle, giving us tips and hints and answering any questions (and stopping for coffee on the way). Being newbies at longer hikes, it really helped us feel comfortable about starting the hike and made it so easy collecting passes etc, and being dropped right at the start of the track was great.
Same great service on the way home.
Andrew and Sean are doing a great job with this company, great service and super friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Thanks!
This is not just your average transport company - it is run by hikers for hikers and is reflected in the friendly expertise offered. I would highly recommend this service to anyone doing the Overland Track!

We used this company to get to and from the Overland Track from our base in Launceston. The guys are amazing, full of information and handy advice. Andrew was our driver for both trips, great hints and tips and awesome customer service. We hired a PLB, bought fuel for our stove and also got luggage storage all through the one company. They offer a great service from pack fitting, gear checks and demos, right down to photographing the start of your hike.
This is the only company to choose if you are looking for transportation to and from the Overland Track! They make your journey very comfortable and the owners are two of the nicest guys you will meet! They are always there to answer any questions you have about the track and your gear! They clearly guide you through each step and ensure you have everything before you start! They will exceed your customer service expectations! So what are you waiting for, book them in ! :)
We could not have been happier with the service - Sean and Andrew were a pleasure to deal with and made the logistics for the Overland Track so easy. Travelling as a group of 9 it would have been almost impossible to organise without them. They gave us great tips, organised gas bottles (which we couldn’t have brought on the plane from the mainland) and held on to our non-hiking gear until they picked us up at the end. Fantastic service which I would recommend to everyone. Thanks Sean and Andrew
Travelling interstate to complete a multi-day thru-hike is stressful enough without having to worry about the logistics and costs of getting to and from the track. These guys took the stress out of that. Sean was very informative when I emailed enquiring about there services and explained what my options were.
Andrew was amazing on the drive to and from the track and shared his experiences and gave some invaluable tips along the way. They have gear to hire and/or buy and are more than happy to make sure your pack is fitted properly.
Affordable, professional service from an awesome team that was a pleasure to deal with.
We have just completed the Overland Track and enjoyed the challenges and rewards of being well prepared. Sean tips and great communication online and in person really set us up for this awesome adventure. We nailed all the weather changes with ease. The rented gear was of top quality and the transportation both ways was on time and comfortable.
We would just like to say thank you to you and the team for providing such personalized service and helping us make the most of our experience in the incredible Tasmanian wilderness.
Wil definitely recommend you to our friends going to the trek in the coming months.
I only planned to use the Overland Track Transport to the start of my trek but was most pleased when I found out at the conclusion of my hike that they could take me back to the Launceston Airport.
Both trips were most enjoyable. The bus arrived on time, great drivers who were very knowledgeable about the Overland Track, friendly and just great guys! The buses were new and clean and it was a pleasure to use the Overland Track Transport, will definitely use yoy guys again.
