Dove Lake

National Parks and Reserves Natural Attractions

Dove Lake, at the foot of Cradle Mountain, is circled by a six-kilometre track that offers one of Tasmania’s best walks.
Most of it is on boardwalk and includes views of Cradle Mountain, unexpected beaches on the side of the lake, the ancient Ballroom Forest, a patch of Tasmania’s notorious horizontal scrub and the occasional echidna or platypus.
Dove Lake is at the northern end of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. It is possible to drive vehicles to the lake however parking may be limited. Your park access fee includes free use of the Dove Lake Shuttle Bus, which departs the visitor centre for Dove Lake regularly.
