Tasmania’s most popular national park attracts visitors from around the world. The best way to explore the park is by hiking the Overland Track – a five-day hike from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair – however there are many other shorter walks that are also rewarding.
The park is broken into two parts: Lake St Clair, accessible from the south and Cradle Mountain, accessible from Devonport or Launceston in the north. Most visitors to the park visit Cradle Mountain at the northern end of the national park.
Coming & going & local transport
The park is one of Tasmania’s biggest attractions and it is well served by public transport. Tassielink’s Strahan to Launceston service calls in at the Cradle Mountain Transit Centre at the northern end of the national park and their Strahan to Hobart service stops at Lake St Clair at the southern end of the park.
