Cradle Mountain Huts Walk
Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair National Park, Tasmania, Australia.
Discover one of Australia’s most spectacular World Heritage Areas while hiking the world famous Overland Track in the peaceful and exquisite terrain of Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair National Park, Tasmania. It’s all yours to experience on the Cradle Mountain Huts Walk.
Cradle Mountain Huts Walk is a six-day, five-night walk by Tasmanian Walking Company. The itinerary maximises opportunities for optional side trips including Mt Ossa – Tasmania’s highest peak (weather permitting), Lake Will and a number of lookouts and waterfalls. The Cradle Mountain Huts Walk offers the only private accommodation on the trail.
Each day, you’ll walk between 7-12km (excluding side trips) over varied terrain including button grass plains, temperate rainforests, alpine meadows and open moorland. Wildlife encountered along the way may include wombats, paddymelons, echidnas and an array of birdlife. The Tasmanian Devil also makes this area its home.
At the end of the six-day adventure, walkers take the truly spectacular 17km boat trip across Lake St Clair before returning to Launceston by private transfer.
At the end of each day, wind down in the warmth and comfort of the only private hut accommodation on the Overland Track. The lodges are discreetly located off the main trail and offer hot showers, a drying room and twin-share accommodation. Conscious of the effect of tourism on the environment, the operators of these huts pride themselves on providing luxury accommodation, sustainably. Your guides will prepare an inspired three-course dinner each night while you sit back and relax with a glass of Tasmanian wine.
