Tourists visit Tasmania for one main reason, to see spectacular Cradle Mountain. Listed as a heritage site in 1982 due to its natural, cultural and wilderness qualities, you will not be disappointed when you visit this unique spot in Tassie. Rising 1545 metres above sea level, Cradle Mountain is situated within Lake St Clair National Park that covers 1260 square kilometres that is made up of gorges, lakes, peaks, moors and lush flora. In addition, there are 25 major peaks that surround Lake St Clair, Australia's deepest freshwater lake.
On our 10 day Tasmanian Wonders tour, we'll take you to Dove Lake for amazing views of Cradle Mountain. With free time in the afternoon, you'll have an opportunity to explore the National Park further or Landscape Gallery. Alternatively you may want to relax in beautiful natural surroundings back at your hotel Cradle Mountain Chateau. Located at the northern boundary of Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park amongst alpine woodland, it is the perfect base to explore this magical area of Tasmania.
With only 60 beautifully appointed rooms, rest and rejuvenate here before you continue your Tasmania holiday. Enjoy the steam room, a beauty treatment or relaxing massage at the Calm Day Spa or visit the Wilderness Gallery, Australia's largest privately owned photographic gallery dedicated to the display of wilderness photography. Step outside and hear the sounds of currawong and not far from the Chateau are boutique vineyards that grow the grapes that produce some of the best sparkling wines in Tasmania.
