Cradle Mountain National Park

Feel inspired in the primeval wilderness of vast Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.

You’ll feel a million miles from modern life when you glimpse the jagged dolerite peaks of Cradle Mountain across the mirrored waters of Dove Lake. It’s a wilderness vision that draws travelers to World Heritage-listed Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park time and time again.

Formed by glacial forces during the last Ice Age, the park has vegetation unlike anything you’ll find on Australia’s mainland. Walk round silent, mirrored Dove Lake, past waterfalls and through the myrtle beech and pencil pine of the Ballroom Forest. Or lose between one to five hours on one of the other popular walks including Hanson’s Peak, Twisted Lakes, Lake Rodway and Lake Lila.

The area around the mountain has a large number of day walks, as well as being one terminus of the Overland Track. The mountain is frequently climbed by tourists, virtually year round. It is a strenuous (recommended allotted time: 6.5 hours) return hike from the Dove Lake car park. The climb up the rocky there are spectacular 360° views, encompassing Dove Lake, Barn Bluff and Mount Ossa.
