Hammock Camping on the Overland Track - Tas, Australia?
I saw that HF member HitchHiking has done a little bit of hammock camping on the Overland Track in Tasmania, but I was wondering whether anyone has done the entire track and been able to hang the entire way?
I've done the entire track... in a tent.
However, I reckon you could do it, as I remember there are plenty of trees about at all of the marked campsites. I recently did a week in the Tarkine rainforest (NW Tas), and my biggest problem was finding enough open ground between trees to pitch the hammock and tarp but I always found a few spots that suited.
Keep in mind that there are huts as well, so you have alternatives. Might be worth keeping a lw pad at the bottom of your pack in case you need to spend the night in a hut or on the ground.
great to hear that. thanks for the tips - i might take a pad rather than an UQ then for added flexibility
