Hi David, et al,
I haven't personally do the Overland Track, but the high county in Tassie, in general, is pretty sparsely populated for birds. You may get some great species, like Black Currawong, Ground Parrot, Southern Emu-wren and striated Fieldwren, but other species will be pretty light on, I'm afraid. It's not that I want to dissuade you from coming to beautiful Tassie, nor from doing the Overland Track, which I love to do myself, but it's just a fact of life! Sigh!

John Tongue,
Ulverstone, Tas.

Dear fellows birders,
next year two of my friends want us to walk the overland track in Tasmania (Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair) for one of those milestone birthdays (40). I think it is a great idea but I can't seem to convince them to go to Broome and the kimberley instead. They are not birders and the Broome Bird Observatory means nothing to them. I like Tasmania but I was wondering: can anyone tell me if there is good birding on this track? I have walked it before and it was a lovely walk but not as 'birdy' as I had hoped. Perhaps I was not paying enough attention? It was twelve years ago. I remember mud and rain and little delicate mosses, toadstools, some rain, sassafras, wombats and wallabies and iron bark flowers on the path.

PS I can't convince them to do the South Coast Track - already asked.
