Aim high, plummet low or keep hiking boots on the ground at Tasmania’s most popular natural playground.
Day 1: Around Cradle Mountain
Begin with that view, riding the national-park shuttle bus to the shores of Dove Lake. Absorb the trademark scene of Cradle Mountain rising from its waters, then set out clockwise around the Dove Lake circuit walk.
Choose another trail, for more exploration. Hike to Crater Lake and Wombat Pool, or climb on from Crater Lake to reach Marions Lookout – this is the first section of the Overland Track, providing a taste of the famous hike.
In the evening, head to Devils @ Cradle to watch Tasmanian devils scrap and snarl over dinner.
