Lake St. Clair was formed ages ago by glaciation and is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. See the fringing forests, mountains, and trails reflected in the calm, deep waters of a lake that attracts adventure seekers from around the world. The lake forms the southern access for the Cradle Mountain National Park, which is noted for its many hiking trails, such as the well-known Overland trail. This trail, 65 kilometers (40 mi) long, runs through an area of wild landscapes, ancient rain forests, and diverse animal habitats. Hike any one or all of the marked trails around or near the lake to explore a distinctive animal world, which includes pademelons, wallabies, quolls, wombats, ravens, and possums.
