Where is Cradle Mountain Tasmania

Where is Cradle Mountain?

Cradle Mountain National Park is in the central highlands of  Tasmania, Australia.  It is an iconic mountain that dominates the northern end of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage area. Cradle is a popular tourism destination, enjoyed by many visitors from around the world.  Renowned for excellent day walks, magical old growth rain forests and rugged landscapes, it is a must see Australian destination.

Cradle Mountain is also about getting up close to native Australian wildlife.  It is very easy to see wombats, pademelon wallabies, echidnas and if you are lucky, a platypus!  Bird watching is also a very popular activity.

To travel to  Cradle Mountain you need to drive inland from Launceston, Devonport, Burnie or Strahan.   For driving or travel directions and maps see our page How to get to Cradle Mountain.

Cradle Mountain itself is located on the northern edge of the World Heritage Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park.  It is in the wilderness and a long distance from many services that most of us are used to.

Cradle Mountain is about 2-2.5 hours drive from Launceston, 4.5- 5 hours from Hobart or 1.5 – 2 hours drive from Devonport.

When driving in Tasmania distances in time, rather than kilometers, are what most people talk about. This is because the roads are windy and driving conditions slow. Visit this page for driving directions to Cradle Mountain from Hobart, Launceston, Devonport, Strahan and Burnie.

So, where is Cradle Mountain? In Tasmania, Australia!
