Upgraded helipads improve safety for the Overland Track
Experience national parks through art
Parks driving boom in visitor numbers
The main track to Cradle Mountain summit leaves from Dove Lake and goes via Lake Lilla and Marions Lookout. However, walkers have a choice of several tracks and can choose to walk a different track on their return trip. Time of day, weather conditions and fitness of party should be kept in mind when choosing tracks for the trip. If in doubt, check with staff at the visitor centre. The walk is located in Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park.
Once on the Cradle Plateau you will be walking among Tasmania's unique alpine vegetation. The climb up to the summit will take you through a jumble of magnificent dolerite scree and columner towers. Needless to say, the view from the top is superb!
