Overview

Part of the World Heritage–listed Tasmanian wilderness, the Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park incorporates glacier-sculpted mountain peaks, river gorges, lakes, tarns and tracts of wild alpine moorland. Few places in the world offer such pristine scenery and diverse hiking options. It’s a paradise for photographers, wildlife and outdoors enthusiasts, but, most of all, it’s a haven for walkers. Just as importantly it’s a haven for those who prefer a little bit of luxury so you can put your heavy backpack and tent aside and enjoy staying in comfort, eating chef-prepared meals whilst comprehensively exploring this area one step at a time.

Filling a valley carved out by ice during several glaciations over the last two million years, Lake St Clair is the deepest lake in Australia and the headwaters of the Derwent River. It is ringed by some remarkable mountain peaks which are covered in snow for much of the year. It is also the end point for those bushwalkers tackling the Overland Track which runs between Lake St Clair and Cradle Mountain. We will walk the northern and southern-most sections of the world famous Overland Track through the Tasmanian Wilderness of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, plus some of the best of Tasmania’s Great short walks of this region. We have included the iconic Cradle Mountain walks including the Face Track and Dove Lake as well as many other hikes.

Ancient rainforests and alpine heaths, pine-fringed glacial lakes and icy streams that cascade down rugged mountains make the walks at Cradle even more special. We have designed the walking to take in the best walking not to just have you on the Overland Track. The walks are also flexible allowing you to shorten them if need be.
