    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.

    HTH!
