It was another amazing postcard place with unparalleled views. We just stopped for a short while due to the chilly weather and it was getting dark. However, I will definitely come back to do a walk next time, which would be much more interesting.

Loved this spot to walk in the wilderness - beautiful high country with lakes and mountains. Driving is great, road well maintained, and short or long walks available

At Narcissus Hut, we had the choice of walking the 16km along Lake St Clair or catching a boat back to Cynthia Bay. We walked. It's a beautiful stretch through mossy fungi ridden beech forests with glimpses of lake. The tangled roots and mud on...More
