Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park (south)

Lake St Clair is the deepest lake in Australia and is the headwaters of the Derwent River, which flows to Hobart. At the visitor centre you can see a hologram of the extinct thylacine and pick up a walks brochure. The Figure of Eight track (4.8 kilometres, about one-and-a-half hours) takes you through four different types of vegetation and passes the spectacular meeting point of two rivers. Look for wildflowers (late spring and summer) and interpretive signs about Aboriginal culture and local flora. For more information see Cradle Mountain–Lake St Clair National Park (north).
