Cradle Mountain

The iconic Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park is a 110-minute drive from Country Club Tasmania.

For serious bushwalkers, the world-renowned Overland Track starts here. Marion’s Lookout and the Dove Lake circuit are great shorter walks.

Keep an eye out for native flora and fauna, like the myrtle-beech Ballroom Forest, King Billy Pine, wildflowers, wombats, pademelons, echidnas, quolls, platypus and birds.

Cradle Mountain has plenty to keep the family entertained for the day. Play in the snow, spot a Tassie Devil, browse the Wilderness Gallery, take a helicopter view, try fly fishing or enjoy a bite to eat and a drink at some of the cafes and restaurants.

For true adventure seekers, Cradle Mountain Canyons offers the thrill of abseiling and sliding down waterfalls, including the “Laundry Chute” – a ten-metre natural slide that shoots you out of a cave and into a pool.
