Take in the Magic
Experience dusk making its way into Cradle Valley from the shores of Dove Lake. If you find yourself lakeside in favourable weather, you’ll see an amazing reflection that’s more like a painting than real life.
Go take a hike
Experience some of the most beautiful, remote and raw landscapes in Australia, where you’ll find views of stunning alpine landscapes and towering mountains like these.
Stay at Pumphouse Point
A stay at Pumphouse Point feels like sleeping on water, perhaps because you are – the Pumphouse is located at the end of a 250-metre flume and seems to float on Australia’s deepest natural lake. For something a little more secluded, check out The Retreat hidden on the edge of lake.
Watch the sunset from kunanyi / Mount Wellington
Some of the most beautiful views over Hobart are from the summit of kunanyi / Mount Wellington. It’s the perfect place to watch the sun go down over the city. Rug up with a blanket and watch the pastel colours fill the sky.
Find a mountain hut
Hidden away in the remote landscapes of the Tasmanian highlands is a collection of alpine huts. Used mainly as emergency shelters, they are a stark reminder of the rawness and unpredictability of the Tassie’s weather. They’re also a great place to stop for lunch.
Experience the rugged
Witness the raw and rugged Tasman Sea meet the spectacular 300 metre high cliffs of the Tasman Peninsula. With some of the highest sea cliffs in Australia, the Tasman Peninsula is famous for its dramatic coastline and natural diversity that is completely awe inspiring.
Climb every mountain
Wake up early to watch the sunrise from Hanson’s Peak. About an hour hike from the Dove Lake car park you can find yourself amongst the clouds. Even if the view is hampered by mist, it’s still a beautiful experience catching glimpses of the surrounding mountains.
Settle in for some stargazing
On a clear night you can find yourself counting the stars over Dove Lake. Experiencing Cradle Mountain like this with your own eyes is a magical way to end your stay in Tasmania.
