O.T Overland Track (Tassie) in Winter 31-Jan-2013 At 8:20:18 AM Cam McKenzie
I've also done it in June / July. We took snow shoes. Would have got by without them, but they were pretty handy in a few places. It's a stunning place to be in winter. We got lucky and had 5 days of pretty much perfect weather. We walked South -> North and ended up in a whiteout on the last day walking around Cradle Mountain, but other than that, all good.

It's a very civilised way of doing winter walking as the huts are all open and have gas heaters in them. No snow covered tents to pack up each day. Awesome.

I'd also second the recommendation for trekking poles.
