“Iconic Cradle Mountain is a place of exceptional natural beauty in the heart of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. From moss-covered ancient rainforests and deep river gorges to snow-covered mountain peaks, wild alpine moorlands and glacial lakes, the park is revered for its diverse and breath-taking landscapes.
A place for all seasons, discover deep snowdrifts in winter, spectacular displays of yellows, oranges and reds across the mountain slopes in autumn as Tasmania’s deciduous Fagus turns colour, playful young joeys & hungry echidnas emerging in spring, and the fragrance of wildflowers filling the air as you dip your toe into a crystal-clear lake on a summer’s day.”

There are accessible toilets located at the Dove Lake carpark."

"The majority of the Cradle Mountain shuttle buses are wheelchair accessible. These buses travel regularly from the visitor centre to the interpretation centre, and on to Dove Lake.
The Rainforest Walk, (starting at the interpretation centre and Ranger Station), is an all-weather boardwalk and suitable for most independent wheelchair users. The Enchanted Walk, starting about 30 metres along the road before the interpretation centre, is a very easy walk for all ages. The first half of this walk is sealed and wheelchair accessible, but after the bridge there are a number of steps. There are two accessible picnic areas located next to the interpretation centre, both with sheltered picnic tables and BBQs.
A TrailRider (all-terrain wheelchair) is available at Cradle Mountain for visitors with impaired mobility. This enables greater access to the National Park and provides more opportunity to discover all Cradle Mountain has to offer. The TrailRider can be used on a range of designated walking tracks within the National Park that are not accessible to conventional wheelchairs.
The TrailRider is available for hire free of charge although bookings are required in advance. To book contact Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre."
