Shadow Lake is the easy, scenic overnight walk just a few hours from Hobart that will have you arrive in time for happy hour.

Day walks that can be done as overnight walks are truly magical things as they allow for late starts out of the city when other events threaten your weekend. Also, because of the shortened distances pack-carrying, there is more time for being at your overnight destination and slowing down to take it all in. An added advantage of the short walk is lighter packs or the option to throw in, say, a bottle of chilled vino to help enhance the quality of being in your destination.
