Pine Forest Moor, Overland Track, Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, TAS
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.
