This 6km track is one of Tasmania’s premier walks. It will take you right around Dove Lake and beneath the towering spires of Cradle Mountain.
The track is boardwalked for much of the way. It is located in Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park..
While you are in the area, another really good nearby walk nearby is the Enchanted Walk that starts near the Cradle Mountain Interpretation Centre.
Going over Dove Lake towards Cradle Mountain is one of teh most spectacular vistas on the National Park.
A brides takes you over the Dove River which was flowing nicely after some overnight rain.
There are many small tributaries flowing into the lake the trickle of which make beautiful sounds as you walk.
The track here consists on small light coloured rocks that are quite gorgeous to look at.
The bush includes some pretty impressive Pandanus palms trees.
Beautiful to see the lake though the trees.
You can touch the cool rock face as you wander around the boardwalk.
The track goes through a stunning section of ancient myrtle-beech trees festooned in moss that tower majestically from a moss strewn forest floor.
In the heart of 'The Ballroom' runs a small creek.
The track passes a small, inviting beach, but it looked a bit too chilly for a dip.
Looking back and seeing the different colours of themany species of trees.
A fabulous section of grasses surrounding the band walk.
The Boat Shed was built in 1940 by the first Ranger at Cradle Mountain, Lionell Connell. The shed was built largely of King Billy pine.
