Cradle Mountain Summit
Dove Lake Circuit
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. Highlights: Glacier Rock, Ballroom Forest and the Boatshed.
A walk to suit all age groups. For company there’s a cascading river, wombat burrows and magical old-growth rainforest. The walk will take you through buttongrass moorland before entering cool temperate rainforest along the edges of Pencil Pine Creek. Along the track are three interpretive tunnels that kids and kids at heart will find fun to crawl through!
Fossil Bluff and Lookout
For the geological buff these amazing sandstone cliffs are over 275 million years old and offer a rare insight into fossils. It’s the discovery site of Australia’s oldest fossil marsupial uncovered in the mid 19th century estimated to be approximately 25 million years old. Visitors can expect to see and touch several hundred different types of fossils preserved in the rocks – see how many you can find! This walk also includes the short lookout walk which is also accessible fro
This is a popular picnic area just south of Burnie, near Ridgley. An easy walking track to the base of the two-tiered falls is a few hundred metres upstream. The road continues to the top of the falls and the viewing platform. A walking track leads you through the thick undergrowth of the riverside, down to a grassed area at the bottom. There are barbecues with picnic tables at both the top and bottom of the falls; a beautiful place to spend the day in summer.
Montezuma Falls walk
Tumbling an impressive 104m, it is a tremendous reward for those taking the 7km, 3-hour return track that follows the old North East Dundas Tramway, which serviced various mines in the area.
The best-known, and arguably best quality, bushwalk in Australia, the Overland Track traverses the finest of Tasmania's wilderness: rugged mountain peaks, wild alpine moors and deep forests. With a series of side-trips available, no two trips are the same.
If the lure of the Tassie wilds is becoming too much, but you are concerned about 'biting off more than you can chew'. Then Pine Valley is a great 'toe dipper'. Reasonably straightforward to get to with good facilities means the experience is all the better.....no control over the weather though :)
