A few walks available during the winter so didn't do the circuit but did the walk towards the boatshed. Did see a few wombats! And a pink breasted robin. This area is full of wonderful views. Not to be missed.

My husband and I walked along this circuit on 19 August. The snow was thick on the ground but the sky was a brilliant blue and the sun was shining bright in the sky. We both had good walking shoes on so walking through the snow wasn't too bad. The walk around offers many varied and different views of the... More

Suggested time is two hours, but plan for longer so you can thoroughly enjoy the wonderland on offer. By far, the best walk at Cradle Mountain and well worth waiting for a shuttle as opposed to taking your own car. You pay for the park entry and once you've done that, the shuttle is free.

After finally getting in when the parks department determined a few snowflakes don't make the road dangerous (read my review about Cradle Mountain), we finally got to do the Dove Lake Circuit - WOW!! Pictures just can't do it justice, it was beautiful. The patches of snow, and the lack of people made it even more memorable. The walk has... More

Well worth the trip. Get the all day bus tour,and you can go back as many times as you like. All the walks are great, for different levels of fitness.

this walk provides a great variety of landscapes, all quite stunning and an opportunity to meet some wildlife. Make sure to dress appropriately and take a water bottle.
