Cradle-St Clair is a popular destination located within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area covering one-fifth of the state.
The park is known for rainforests, glacial lakes (such as St Clair), Aussie wildlife, streams and waterfalls, and of course, the jagged peaks of Cradle Mountain that cut into the sky. Cradle marks the start of the world-famous Overland Track, a six-day walk leading you through some of the area’s most scenic terrain.
