Cradle Mountain Huts Walk

The Cradle Mountain Huts walk is a fabulous journey within Tasmania’s World Heritage Area. Following the famous Overland Track, the walk starts in the Cradle Valley and over the six-day journey, you travel through a variety of spectacular landscapes until you arrive at Lake St. Clair.

Cradle Mountain – Lake St. Clair National Park is 161,204 hectares of World Heritage wilderness, a pristine and prized environment. As you explore this extraordinary place, you pass through environments with marked geological contrasts; glacial lakes, rainforests, and craggy peaks, each with their own unique flora and fauna. Pencil pines and deciduous beech remind you of the areas’ Gondwanan origins and the area is home to wombats, echidnas, wallabies and Tasmanian devils, who all call this wilderness home.

Each evening you retreat to one of five private huts nestled away in this remarkable park. Just off the Overland Track, each hut is a haven at the end of the day and features hot showers, potbelly heater and twin-share rooms with comfortable beds.

The huts have been designed to be ecologically sustainable, with non-polluting, self-contained services and careful waste management practices to reflect the Tasmanian Walking Company’s minimal impact values. A hearty three-course dinner is prepared by multi-skilled guides, and served with fine Tasmanian wine and a dose of cheerful conversation to help you unwind.

Each morning is filled with anticipation for what lies in store. As you journey along the track, let the wonder and inspiration of the Tasmanian wilderness sink in. You feel so minute in this vast landscape yet somehow it nurtures the soul. With eco-sensitive practices in place, this fragile environment is preserved for the future and enjoyed today by a few who leave nothing behind but gain much.
