This is a relatively easy walk from the car park, the paths are well maintained and at times quite busy. It is one of the classic walks and a great introduction to the region with good views up the mountain and across the lake. I think this is a route that can be easily accomplished by most people with moderate... More

This is a great walk for everyone. Easy trail well maintained. Fresh air, beautiful views. Enjoy the different variety of flora. Dress well. Long pants that can be zipped off, singlet, jumper and Goretex jacket. Need waterproof shoes. Be prepared and you'll enjoy.

My wife and I went to Dove Lake on a stunningly beautiful day and having read the reviews were expecting something spectacular. We had driven 2 and a half hours from Launceston and had seen some stunning scenery on the drive (we took the scenic tourist route rather than the quicker main road option). Some of the look out points... More

A good walk in a beautiful native environment. It is around 5.8km in length and took us just over 2 hours. The track is well made with boardwalks in many areas to protect the environment and make walking a bit easier. The recommendation is that you walk clockwise however if you do it in reverse you get the steepest bit... More

Easy two hour walk around the lake. Really well built and maintained walking track. A lot of work has gone into this. Great views of the mountain from different sides and meanders through some lovely mossy areas as well. Highly recommend!

It's not a tough hike, but it will take you up to 4 hours to do the circuit. It can be done faster but who is in a hurry with all the great views. Please to the trip clockwise. Some parts are a bit narrow and if everyone is walking the same direction it will be easier for everyone

This is a good walk, it took us 3 hrs to complete (my mom is 75 y.o.). Good view. We came on a good day with good weather. It rained the day before, so, we could see the waterfalls as well. I am a pretty well-traveled person and I have hiked in many places. I'd say Cradle Mountain is scenic,... More
