Lake St Clair and Cradle Mountain are two iconic elements of this Tasmanian World Heritage area. The scenery is awe-inspiring, as eucalyptus forests give way to mountain scenery reminiscent of Scotland’s finest.

Wildlife

Whether taking a gentle walk around the enchanting Dove Lake, a summit walk to Cradle Mountain peak or even indulging in the six- to eight-day ‘Overland Track’ from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair, you are highly likely to encounter wallabies, wombats and possums at close quarters.

Highlights

Dove Lake hike
As well as the walking, you can visit the Waldheim Hut, home to pioneer conservationist Gustav Weindorfer, and the Wilderness Photography Gallery, experience bountiful fly-fishing and horse riding, and even see the wilderness from the air, on a spectacular flight across lakes and peaks from Cradle Valley.
