Cradle Mountain Rundown ... Read more »

Most visitors who are drawn to Cradle Mountain in Tasmania are rugged adventurers, naturalists or outdoorsy types who want to be immersed in its breathtaking natural surroundings. This part of Australia lures visitors who like to climb, hike, camp and enjoy the caverns, lakes and indigenous flora and fauna. Cradle Mountain is the northern gateway to theCradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, a World Heritage site. In this wilderness area, visitors can enjoy off-road tours, hang-gliding, river-rafting andcanoeing. Hikers should get into top condition before travelling to Cradle Mountain if they are interested in multi-day treks. If you want a less taxing adventure, you can enjoy the vistas of Dove Lake by joining one of the guided walking tours. The Cradle Mountain Canyons tour company offers thrilling canyoning excursions too. There are also plenty of crittersat Cradle Mountain, where the wombats, wallabies, pademelons, ravens and currawongs will try to get your food at any cost. Many of these clever marsupials and birds are able to work a zipper, so keep your provisions tightly sealed in your pack. Do not feed these animals or take any plants as the park rangers will levy high fines.

When To Go

Visitors to Cradle Mountain should be prepared for unpleasant weather. This part of Tasmania is very wet and chilly, and it rains almost every day. Since Cradle Mountain is located in the Southern Hemisphere, summer runs from December through February. Don’t expect the summer months to get too warm, though, as the highest average temperature is about 15°C (59°F). The weather patterns are unpredictable at best, so you should pack a variety of gear no matter when you visit. Since conditions can change quickly, carry raingear even if it is sunny out. The wind in this area renders an umbrella mostly useless, but the good news is that it usually does not rain hard or continuously.
