New sign celebrates the Overland Track experience

14/01/2015

In the 1960s, visitor information signs at Lake St Clair warned of no trapping, hunting, shooting, picking shrubs, cutting timber and grazing stock. Times have changed, with a new sign installation helping Overland Track walkers to celebrate their achievement.


The sign at Lake St Clair was installed in early January, just in time for the track’s peak season. Lake St Clair business services coordinator Bernie Carter said that walkers can now capture the moment when they officially finish the Overland Track.


“The site has been in hot demand from tired, yet elated walkers who have completed the track,” Bernie said. “Once they’ve taken their celebration photos, nine times out of ten, the next question is where’s the beer and steak?”


A similar sign installation was installed at the start of the Overland Track at Ronny Creek, last year.
