Celebrating 100 years of national parks
Repairing the infrastructure of Tasmania's parks
Festival of Bright Ideas
Combine a ferry cruise on Lake St Clair with a walk through the rainforest beside the lake. You leave from, and return to Cynthia Bay at the southern end of Lake St Clair.
Lake St Clair is the deepest lake in Australia, and like much of the beauty of the highlands of Tasmania, is the legacy of the action of ice during the Ice Ages.
The cool temperate rainforest that the walk leads you through is rich in many species of plant that are either unique to Tasmania, or have their closest relatives in New Zealand and Chile - the descendants of a Gondwanan flora.
