Tasmania has a temperate climate with 4 distinct seasons. Warm summer days from December to February and sometimes snow in the cooler months of June to September. The best time to visit Tasmania is between October and April, when the weather is at its best. By May, nights are getting cold and days are getting shorter. Winters (June-Aug), especially in the high country, can be quite harsh- though that's the best time to curl up in front of a blazing fire.
Accommodation throughout the Cradle Mountain Huts Walk is hut based offering simple twin share accommodation and hot showers. Offering clean and comfortable lodgings the emphasis is very much on limiting the impact on nature rather than luxury provisions.
Each hut along the overland track is clean and comfortable offering guests a welcome retreat after a day's hiking. With a large emphasis on limiting environmental footprints, each hut has been designed to be environmentally sustainable and is powered by renewable energy and solar power. Rooms are on a twin share basis with hot water and communal dining areas. After dinner guests can enjoy the selection of books and games found in each hut or alternatively can enjoy the outside decking with a glass of wine. The remote location of these huts is part of their appeal, your neighbours will be wildlife and, with no light pollution, the views of the Milky Way are utterly sensational.
A simple yet clean and comfortable hut based accommodation for the duration of your Cradle Mountain Huts Walk.
Explore one of Australia's World Heritage Areas whilst walking the world-famous overland track passing through the never-ending terrain of Cradle Mountain and lake St Claire National Park on this six day, five night guided walk.
Today you will be walking for approximately six hours across mossy plains and alpine moors. Leaving the dramatic peak of Cradle Mountain behind you, your destination today is the stately Mt Pelion West.
This morning descend to a lower altitude and venture through native myrtle-beech rainforest that thrives at the base of Mt Pelion. With the Forth River in site follow the banks of this gushing waterway leading to picturesque Lemonthyme Valley.
This morning you will ascend almost 300m to Pelion Gap a plateau stretching between Mt Pelion East and My Ossa.
Today you will swap mountainous peaks for thundering waterfalls. From Kia Ora Hut it’s a gentle one hour walk through temperate forest to Du Cane, where a traditional hunters hut from the early 20th century still stands strong.
Today’s walk is the shortest in duration but arguably the most scenic. Your destination today is Lake St Claire, a natural glacier-carved lake known as one of Australia’s deepest.
