For those who just want to get away from it all, no destination will help you put your urban stresses behind you like Cradle Mountain, Tasmania. Cradle Mountain is located on the northern end of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, a World Heritage site. The mountain offers a variety of fun, relaxing, or challenging walks, depending on your preference. For serious wilderness explorers, Cradle Mountain is also the start of the famous six-day Overland Track. During your walks up the mountain, you will encounter ancient rainforests, buttongrass, and deciduous beech. You may even catch a wombat, pademelon, or Tasmanian devil out of the corner of your eye.
Hotel and Accommodation
If you plan early enough, you can snag one of eight cabins located directly in the park. These go quickly, so reserve Cradle Mountain accommodation quickly. If you miss out, not to worry! There are plenty of nearby campsites, cabins, bunk rooms, powered sites, and alpine mini huts near the park. If you prefer to camp in style, you can also find a Cradle Mountain hotel off-site.
You can catch a flight from nearly any major Australian airport to either Launceston or Devonport in Tasmania, and then obtain a car hire to drive into Cradle Mountain National Park. Launceston is roughly 150 km to the park, while Devonport is around 90 km away. You may also be able to arrange a shuttle from your hotel.
