One of the most accessible walks for us oldies if your add a bit to the estimated times. Like all walks in Tassie be prepared for weather changes. Amazing views and if cloudy wait a bit to get the best shots of Cradle Mountain.

Loved everything about it. The weather changed every 20 minutes whilst we were walking from sunshine to hail. A stunning yet haunting place at times.

This walk is well worth the effort. The flora changes quite dramatically and we were lucky to walk on a superbly beautiful day. Some parts a little tricky. We were advised to walk anti-clockwise and decided to ignore that. Might have been wise to have listened.

What an extremely lovely and scenic place to visit. Dove lake is in the Cradle Mountain national park and offers plenty of walks for all stages of fitness. We have visited the place 3 times over the last 9 years.

This walk is spectacular for all the family although it is a fairly long way you can easily take your time and there are lots of places to sit and look at the lake

Take your camera, jacket and water bottle. Its a great easy walk and two hours is easily achieved. Normal flat bottom shoes with laces recommended if you don't have walking shoes. Check out the weather (der!) and act accordingly. Don't stray from the track if unprepared as sunny can and does turn to snow and cold very frequently here, and... More

Although I was unable to do the walks, the area had a lot to offer. From the wonderful staff at the visitors centre, the amazing views, gorgeous animals and friendly cafe staff with good food. Well worth the drive, very scenic from both directions with good roads.

We only did half after returning from Cradle Mountain Summit. It's a beautiful walk around an amazing landmark. There's plenty of places to stop and take it all in, picnic if you will. And it's probably the only place safe enough to take kids under 15 years. If you're one for photography, the lake does not disappoint. Even when the... More

We have just spent 2 nights at Cradle Mountain and was able to book a guided tour of the area. Fitness levels were not great and John was able to revise the tour to suit our abilities.. We still did quite a walk and he was able to give a history and point out some interesting plants.. For those wanting... More
