Cradle Mountain day walks

So you are planning a visit to Cradle Mountain in Tasmania.

You love walking and exploring.

You are on holiday to get out and absorb  everything Cradle Mountain National Park has to offer.

You want to explore, get up close to Australian native animals and enjoy the wilderness.

But what is it like?  Where do you go first? How many days will give you the full experience at Cradle Mountain?

There is a lot of information on this site about day walks at Cradle Mountain.  Spend some time, explore the site and be well prepared for your adventure.

In addition, we recently discovered a fantastic article at Hike Bike Travel by Robyn Waher.  She spent a year exploring Australia and the highlight?


Robyn loved the Cradle Mountain National Park.  She enjoyed exploring, walking and doing some challenging tracks.  She is also a great writer.  Her article Cradle Mountain hiking in Tasmania is inspiring.

Over three days Robyn really got out and exploreed the area.  She tackled the summit of Cradle Mountain, explored the Dove  Lake Circuit and, her personal highlight, hit the track into Lake Rodway then back to Twisted Lakes and Lake Hanson/Hansons Peak. An awesome three days!

If you are planning to do some day walks on your visit to Cradle Mountain, this article: Cradle Mountain hiking in Tasmania, is a great resource. Enjoy!

If you are after detailed free maps of the Cradle Mountain walking tracks, don’t forget to grab them and the free Cradle Mountain Travel guide we here created. Enjoy!

Many thanks to Leigh from Hike Bike Travel for agreeing to share this article.  Hike Bike Travel is a terrific resource for anyone planning a hike….bike…. or travelling around the world.

    Love the photo in this blog – and happy your readers get a chance to see how much Robyn enjoyed her time there.
    I did what I call the Cradle Mountain Walk too – back in 1979 – and the 6 days on the trail surviving on chocolate and peanut butter was one of the highlights of my three months in Australia too.
