Parks and Wildlife Department

The department has a Visitors Guide to Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair. (Note that both these links have drop down boxes right at the top, to select the different pages of information. Subjects such as Introduction, activities, highlights, access, map, etc can be found there.)

Tasmania's Parks department have set up a dedicated Overland Track site. This site has access to the booking page. There is an absolute sea of information on this site which is well worth browsing at leisure.

Department PDF Fact Sheets (and other PDFs)

There are a number of other fact sheets worth looking at - there are a few on walks from Lake St Clair, as well as ones that cover such things as minimal impact walking, walking safely, and cooking and food tips.

Maps

There are a number of maps available which any map shop would be able to assist you with:

There are likely to be others too (eg, 1:100000, which are a bit small for reliable navigation).

Printed Track Notes

Transport
