Cradle Mountain
& Lake St Clair

Within the Highlands is the renowned Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, an area of mountains, alpine moorlands, lakes, tarns and a wide variety of fauna and flora. The Western Lakes wilderness fishery, also known as the 'Land of 3000 Lakes' is home to the famed Tasmanian wild brown trout and the fishery provides one of the State's greatest sporting challenges.

Many visitors choose to enter the Highlands from Cradle Mountain where Federal Resorts Cradle Mountain Chateau offers first class accommodation right on the edge of the National Park.

Voyages Cradle Mountain Lodge offers different but equally enjoyable accommodation in lodge or self-contained cabin style. Visitors can enjoy a range of activities at Cradle Mountain in keeping with the environment – from climbing, canoeing and abseiling to guided explorer tours to bushwalk the highlands.

A range of accredited trout guides and lodges are available for the visiting angler, who wants to take home a unique Tasmanian trout experience.
