Explore Tasmania’s Wild Heart
Cradle Mountain is our region’s gem, and the Cradle Coast spans the distance from Cradle to the coastlines of the north and west of Tasmania, also including King Island. The physical, visual placement of Cradle acts as a distinguishing landmark, cradling the rest of our region; from its hinterland, to our coastal hubs and western wilderness.
Where will your journey take you?
From jagged peaks to sandy beaches, diverse experiences await you across the Cradle Coast. As you explore your way through the region, the landscape changes dramatically, offering varied and spectacular views as you go. Enjoy the lakes and ancient forests of the Tarkine, iconic peaks of Cradle Mountain, and white sandy beaches at Boat Harbour. You get to choose your own adventure when you explore the Cradle Coast.
