(Done as a 4 day walk with hut accommodation) Beautiful scenery. Walk was designed as an introduction to multiday hiking, and for families so might be a bit "cushy" for the seasoned hiker who likes to rough it.
The distances each day aren't long, so walk slowly and enjoy the landscape.
Rangers are excellent, facilities great.

You can do the walk without staying at the huts.

The views on this hike are spectacular, the overnight huts have well equipped kitchens and the beds are extremely comfortable.
The rangers at the huts are a wealth of knowledge and their daily briefs are very informative.
Each day has something amazing to offer, views, wildlife and the tracks are very well maintained.
Best 4 days of my life, absolutely loved it.

Fantastic scenery, although the track feels a little "over-engineered" and designed to attract people who don't have much Tasmanian hiking experience. I would recommend the free version of this walk, done in one day or as an overnight walk:

Most breathe taking scenery and truly life changing experience! Would do every year!
