I went in Winter which is one of the best times to go to Tasmania because restaurants and pubs have cosy woodfires on and [especially in Cradle... More

Excellent advice and spoilt for choice with great short walks from the Visitor's Centre. Clearly marked and graded from walks suitable for families and young children to experienced hikers.

Lake St. Clair is the end point of the famous overland track, starting at Cradle Mountain, and also a place with several day-hike options. When our group completed the six-day Overland Track, we basked in the sun on the ferry boat dock at the beautiful Lake St. Clair. You can arrive at the visitor center by car or by hiking... More

a nice 17.5 km walk to the visitor centre along the lake staying at Echo Point - Would have been nice if the clouds had stayed a away a day earlier. Plenty of long/ short walks leaving from the visitors centre

We stopped off here for an afternoon. We did a Short 2 hour walk which was nice but nothing special compared to the other fabulous walks and scenery we saw in Tasmania. It was also pretty busy compared to a lot of other places we visited. Some of the longer walks may be nicer. I think this is worth visiting... More

Perfect weather to see the lake and the reflection was sublime. So peaceful, pure magic. Early morning avoids the tourist crowds.

We stopped for a short stroll on our way from Hobart to Strahan and only took the shortest loop through a bit of the bush and then down to the lake and back out. We saw a wild echidna right on the foot path and I imagine those going further in see much more. The downside were the swarms of... More

The lake is beautiful but the March flies were extreme. Take spray and coveralls. Make sure to try the water straight out of the lake.
