Located at the northern end of the Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park, Cradle Mountain is surrounded by smooth glacial lakes, ancient rainforest, and unusual alpine vegetation.

National Parks

The Cradle Coast covers the area of five of Tasmania's National Parks. All five of these National Parks offer varying experiences and landscapes. From the iconic backdrops at Cradle Mountain Lake St. Clair National Park to the wildlife experiences found at Narawntapu National Park, each Park offers a truly wonderful, wild Tasmanian experience.

Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park

The Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park is wild by nature, wild by name, with dramatic mountain peaks, spectacular gorges and world-famous rivers running through the heart of the Tasmanian wilderness. Part of Tasmania's World Heritage Area, this national park is closely linked to the successful campaign to protect the beautiful Franklin river from being flooded as a result of the proposed damming of the Gordon River in the 1980s.
