Walk

Walk from Ronny Creek to Lake Rodway (Scott-Kilvert Hut and camping area). During Summer 2019/20 this is the recommended first leg of the Overland Track whilst Waterfall Valley Hut and area is upgraded. Start from the bus stop and car park at Ronny Creek, then wander for a few hundred meters through the buttongrass plains beside Ronny Creek. After this the uphill starts, it is very steep in places, take your time and enjoy the views. You will pass Crater Falls in a lovely rainforest before emerging at the mouth of the glacier-carved Crater Lake. The climbing continues up from here, with chains to assist one short rock scramble up to Marion's Lookout and the amazing views over Dove Lake. Continue along the Overland Track to Kitchen Hut (a great lunch spot) where there is the potential side trip to Cradle Mountain. The Overland Track then continues 'behind' Cradle Mountain before then deviates from the spine of the Overland Track by turn left to head down to Lake Rodway. Follow the steep track downhill to find the Hut and camping areas not far from the shores of the lake. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Walk

The Overland Track is an iconic 4-10 day walk in the heart of Tasmania wilderness. The main spine of this walk guides you through incredibly diverse environments from alpine to lakeside rainforest. Side trips give you access to Mt Ossa, the highest peak in Tasmania as well as many other great peaks, waterfalls and other fantastic places to explore. There are well-established campsites with huts, toilets and tank water each night, a tent is needed as the public huts can not be booked. This track is very popular, especially during summer, you can walk with a guide or do the trip selfguided. Bookings are required during the warmer seasons with spaces filling up quickly. Snow and extreme weather are very possible any time of year, everyone walking the track requires bushwalking experience, those walking in the colder months requires extra alpine walking skills, experience and equipment. Let us begin by acknowledging the palawa people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Waldheim Chalet at the end of Connells Avenue, Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, this walk takes you along the Weindorfers Forest Walk. Perfect for families, this lovely stroll takes you through a beautiful rainforest, where you'll see ancient King Billy pines, pandani and Tasmania's renowned deciduous beech. The track leaves from Waldheim chalet and takes a painless grade through the forest. Waldheim Chalet provides an insight into the early history of the Cradle Mountain area and the people who played a pivotal role in the establishment of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Gustav and Kate Weindorfer. A visual and audio display details the rich history of the chalet and the renowned hospitality and colourful lives of the Weindorfers. Although the chalet is no longer used for accommodation, the nearby Waldheim Cabins offer simple and affordable lodgings. Each cabin is equipped with electric heating, single bunk beds, basic cooking utensils, a small refrigerator, crockery, cutlery and a standard electric stove, making Waldheim an excellent base for further adventures within the park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
