Spectacularly beautiful area in
the heart of the island which is ideal for bushwalking.
Mountain is located 144 km from Launceston and 83 km from
Devonport, Cradle Mountain is the central feature of the
Cradle Mountain-Lake St
Clair National Park, part of Tasmania's World Heritage area. The park covers an
area of 124 942 ha which is characterised by a rugged, glaciated landscape with
over 25 major peaks and a wide range of glacial formations - tarns, glacial
lakes, moraine deposits, U-shaped valleys and waterfalls.
In 1982 Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park
along and the Franklin-Lower Gordon Wild Rivers National Park were placed on the
prestigious world heritage list in recognition of their outstanding natural,
cultural and wilderness qualities.
Today the area is a model of an accessible
wilderness region. There are numerous walking huts, a wide range of
day and overnight walks
through the mountains, a road to the edges of
Dove Lake which lies in the shadow
of Cradle Mountain, and plenty of excellent accommodation.
