    CAN YOU WALK THE OVERLAND TRACK FOR FREE?

    The answer is no! Even if you decide to do the Overland Track off-season, when the permit is free, you still need to hold a current national park pass. What if you want to experience the Overland Track during the summer season, but you can't afford it? Interestingly enough, you can get on the Overland Track without paying the booking fee, and do a day or two-day hike instead. Check out the Overland Track alternatives.
