This is simply a fantastic short walk. If you are on a brief visit to Tasmania, like a short stroll in the natural environment and haven't had a chance to see some of the island's endemic rainforest vegetation this walk is a must.

We walked this circuit in the snow. Stopping for many photos, it took us just over 2 hours. The most amazing winter spectacular and so lucky to see it like this.

What a great walk, we were very lucky to have a blue sky day, caught the shuttle bus from visitor centre and all the staff here were just so nice and friendly. The most beautiful walk around Dove Lake Circuit, the flora and scenery is second to none and we were lucky enough to see some wildlife as well. This... More

Wet but fantastic experience all the same. Views were somewhat diminished by low cloud but scenery was dramatic. The process to the National Park was well organised with the visitors centre and shuttle bus service. It was all very easy and enjoyable - even for novice walkers like us !

We went to the lake on the first day of our Tasmania trip. We definitely made a right choice ... The place was so beautiful and the people were so nice and friendly. The only thing I would do differently next time is to get there a bit earlier. We missed out on some tracks because we were running out... More

The circuit is very well signposted and guided as a 2-3 hour walk which is pretty well about right as a time average. The walk is mostly board walked or gravel path and is relatively flat. Their are some great views across the lake at all angles, and of the mountain as well. The circuit will also take in the... More

I did this walk on my own and it took me 1 3./4 hours to do the full circuit without stopping along the way. There are some lovely spots to have lunch around the lake and you get to see some waterfalls that you cannot see without doing the walk.

We are 2 pretty unfit 50+ people but managed this walk in under 2 hours. There are a couple of steep stops, but there are plenty of places to rest and take in the scenery

Don't be fooled by the 'easy' rating for this walk. For someone of average fitness it's no walk in the park! But the whole experience is amazing - especially if you're lucky enough to be here on a day as beautiful as the one we scored. Every 20 steps there is a photo opportunity. The tracks are well maintained (some... More
