The scenery is beautiful and some parts of it remind me of the Milford Trek. I'm impressed by the well maintenance of the Cradle Mountain National Park. You can see the details and effort they put into the trek and make it easy to walk...More
We did the Dove Lake walk and it was spectacular, including Glacier Rock and the Boatshed. The walk is relatively easy, although if you go in a clockwise direction, the last part of the walk is steep and has many steps. We went in the...More

A great walk for the family.. Wonderful scenery and undulating country. We caught the shuttle bus from the Information Centre. These buses leave every 10 minutes and make it very easy for walkers to access several tracks along the way to Dove Lake, offering starting...More
We're started this walk after the buses stopped. We got up the top about 7ish after a delay in getting thru the boom gate. We walked quickly and made it back before sunset it was perfect as the was hardly any one else on the...More
As my wife and I made our way around Tasmania, we were looking forward to spending a few days at Cradle Mountain and walking the different trails. We were particularly looking forward to walking the Dove Lake Circuit.

....... and not too strenuous. This walk takes around 2.5hrs, depending on walking speed and number of stops. The track is either gravel, well maintained boardwalks or rock. Some inclines, but nothing too strenuous and the environment and views are truly amazing.

The early part of the walk is relatively easy and would present no problems, however the middle and homeward sections do have some steep sections and a number of stairs. I would not feel comfortable or recommend attempting this walk with two small children. Would suggest that you could walk as far as Glacier Rock and perhaps a little further along the boardwalks. Then return to the start and walk the first stage of the reverse walk to the Boat Shed. Covering these sections will give you more than ample views of Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake, as well as many photo opportunities.
