This is an easy walk for experienced walkers and takes about 3 hours. It's not really suited for those who don't like to walk. We had a wonderful sunny day and clear skies, and took lots of photos. Very picturesque!

Absolutely stunning and worth doing, but plan your journey a little and allow lots more time. As a group of botanists we got a little carried away (surprise surprise) so we didn't get very far... If you are more the hiker, the tracks are really good and there really is lots to see. Take lots of water!

Once I got past the first 10 minutes of wind and rain at 5 degrees the weather cleared up and the walk was fantastic.

We really enjoyed Dove Lake Circuit. As mentioned, this is a well-pathed trail that is not too difficult and gives you great views of Cradle Mountain. It was a bit cloudy when we started the walk in the morning, and parts of Cradle Mountain was hiding in the clouds. But we were lucky that the weather cleared up as we... More

we drove a long long way and up the mountain on a Sunday. The road was tricky as there were cars driving fast down the mountain with very high speed and no mirrors to check vehicles coming along the road. You never know when cars approaching you from opposite direction. I had to gave way for a few wallabies jumping... More

We hiked this trail in late October. The weather was not great- we didn't get a very good view of Cradle Mountain, BUT we saw so much unique wildlife- wallabies, echidnas, and wombats, to name a few. This made the trip for us. We hiked much of the Dove Lake circuit and also visited some of the other short hikes... More

You can enjoy amazing views from this easily accessible walking trail. You don't need any special hiking gear (we did the walk in sneakers, if it rains you might need waterproof shoes though). Be sure to take a look at the weather forecast and bring warm clothes if needed. When we did the walk in November, the forecast temperatures were... More
