“Carved out by glaciers over millions of years, Lake St Clair is Australia’s deepest freshwater lake. Located at the southern end of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, it forms part of Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area and offers spectacular scenery, an award-winning visitor centre, and a range of beautiful walks to suit every ability.
The environment around Lake St Clair is among Tasmania’s most spectacular. Deep glacial lakes are fringed by dense forests of ancient pines, and the high mountains provide a dramatic backdrop. Native wildlife is abundant in the area – Bennett’s wallabies and pademelons are easily spotted by visitors to the lake, and wombats, echidnas, quolls, and platypus are also resident.”
Accessibility InformationGeneral accessibility features:
- Accessible toilet(s)
"The visitor centre and café at Lake St Clair are wheelchair accessible, as are the toilets within this building. There are accessible picnic tables between the visitor centre and the shore of the lake, some of which are sheltered.
The Watersmeet Trail starts from behind the visitor centre. The track is wide and mostly flat, with a fairly even surface, and is suitable for most wheelchair users, although some may require assistance. At 45 mins to an hour return, it may be too long for some visitors, but it’s well worth doing even part of the walk."
