Transport to Cradle Mountain

Postby catsilversun » Sat 21 Mar, 2020 8:42 am

Hi.

Urgent.

My shuttle company (Overland Track Transport) has cancelled my shuttle from Launceston to Cradle Mountain this Tuesday 24th March. There are no other shuttles available. Hence I'm stuck as booked in to do the OLT starting Tuesday 24th.

Is anyone driving there that can give me a lift? Will pay for costs etc.

Thanks

Chris

Are you already in Tasmania? If not, your trip is shot, because you will have to isolate for 14 days upon arrival in Tassie.
This makes me the first man to climb Mount Everest backwards, without oxygen...or even a jumper.

Huts are closed too.

Ask parks for a refund?


P.S. By the time you return to WA there may be a required 14 day self isolation to get back as well.

Thanks, didn't know they had closed the OLT huts. Was booked on the 3 capes next week, but that it closed. Yes, I have asked for a refund.
