Cradle Mountain, Australia by TahaElraaid Cradle Mountain, Australia by TahaElraaid
Cradle Mountain is a mountain in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Tasmania, Australia. Rising to 1,545 metres (5,069 ft) above sea level, it is one of the principal tourist sites in Tasmania, owing to its natural beauty. The Cradle Mountain is composed of dolerite columns, similar to many of the other mountains in the area.


The area around the mountain has a large number of day walks, as well as being one terminus of the Overland Track.[2][3] The Overland Track winds through a variety of landscapes to its opposite end –808 kilometres (502 mi) to the south– at Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest lake.

The mountain is climbed by tourists virtually year round. It is a strenuous return hike from the Dove Lake car park with a recommended allotted time of 6.5 hours. The climb up the rocky part of the mountain involves scrambling over large boulders for several hundred metres. The entire climb is exposed to any bad weather that may arrive quickly and at any time. From the summit, there is a spectacular 360° view, encompassing Dove Lake, Barn Bluff and Mount Ossa.
