Welcome to Cradle Mountain and Tasmania. What a place!

Rugged, wild, spectacular and a great place for an adventure.

Where is Cradle Mountain? Right on the edge of the World Heritage Cradle Mountain – Lake St Clair National Park in Tasmania.  Cradle Mountain is 2-2.5 hours drive from Launceston, 4.5- 5 hours from Hobart or 1.5 – 2 hours drive from Devonport.

For your information, distances when, driving in Tasmania, are usually in time rather than kilometers 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.

    Back in the 70s I did a uni vacation job with the NPAWS at Cradle – building tracks etc. I remember this guy who was setting off on the Overland with a pack of sandwiches and wearing flip-flops. We gave him the reality check.
