Walkers on the Enchanted Walk
Enchanted Walk is one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks. The 60 Great Short Walks offer the best of Tasmania's day walking opportunities. 20 minute circuit, 1.1km circuit. Grade 2. This is a delightful short walk that provides a taste of Cradle Mountain and is suitable for all ages. It starts near the bridge crossing Pencil Pine Creek and meanders through magical, mossy forest, along a cascading creek. Keep an eye out for colourful fungi, especially during the coldest months. You might also see pademelons and wombats ​on the edges of the forest (please don't feed or touch any animals—​for their safety and yours). A tunnel that mimics a wombat burrow has been built along the track, and is a magnet for children.​​​​​ Please refer to the Parks and Wildlife Service Tasmania website ( for up-to-date information about this walk, alerts, closures, safe walking guidelines, leave no trace principles and National Park entry fees where applicable.
