Attraction

Cradle Mountain

Cradle Mountain
Cradle Mountain in winter
Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake
This spectacular World Heritage Area, 1 hour 15 minutes from Devonport along the C132, was ranked in No 32 in Lonely Planet’s World Ultimate Travel List in 2015, ahead of Uluru, Kakadu and the Sydney Opera House. You’re guaranteed to see wildlife such as wombats, pademelons and currawongs, echidnas and quolls in the serenity of silent isolation amid ancient alpine trees. But Cradle Mountain is not just a place to get away from it, it’s a place to get into it – where you can leap off waterfalls, kayak to isolated myrtle forest, ride a horse through alpine wilderness, or walk for a while … or for days. You can visit a Tassie Devil wildlife sanctuary, take a scenic helicopter ride, see award-winning art galleries, or spend a snowy winter’s day sipping cognac by a fireplace in a cosy lodge as you gaze at the winter wonderland outside. There is accommodation for all budgets, from backpacker to luxury self-contained accommodation.
