Cradle Mountain is Tasmania's most recognisable landmark and one of Tasmania's most visited attractions. Located at the northern end of the Cradle Mountain Lake-St Clair National Park, Cradle Mountain is part of the Tasmanian World Heritage Wilderness Area. The surrounding landscape of ancient rainforest and alpine lands with colourful beech makes for any number of beautiful walks. There's a visitor centre on the park boundary with an interpretive display, ranger station, park information, walker registration and up-to-date weather reports. There's no town at Cradle Mountain, however, there's a wide range of accommodation in the Cradle Valley area, from an excellent campground to a luxury wilderness lodge. There are many superb short walks from the visitor centre and the Dove Lake car park, 14 kilometres further on. A five-kilometre wooden boardwalk links the ranger station to Dove Lake, giving visitors an easy way to explore the park. A free shuttle bus takes visitors into the park and if you choose to walk part of the way the shuttle will pick you up at various points along the road.
