The mountain is situated within a national park that encompasses rugged peaks, grasslands, alpine heaths, ancient rainforests, and glacial lakes. Start your hike to the summit from the Dove Lake early in the morning. The climb is long and can be difficult for inexperienced (or out of shape) tourists. When you reach the peak, your effort will be awarded with memorable views over Tasmanian wilderness.

  • State Parks is in a mountainous area so very cold and foggy. You have to ride a car or a tour here and must be parked outside of State Parks. There is a free shuttlebus to some places of interest in state parks. $16.50 entrance ticket per person. Most people love the Lake but there are some wild animals, such as echidna and Wombats, which are usually terllihat near Ronnys Hut. We meet three Wombats and Wallabies one time sightseeing in the region.
