The mountain itself is part of the Cradle Mountain–Lake St. Clair National Park in Tasmania’s Central Highlands — one of 5 parks that form a UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, spanning over 1 million hectares. Once upon a time, the area was blanketed by glaciers and ice, and is now one of the world’s last remaining stretches of temperate rainforest. Even cooler? Exploration of the area’s limestone caves has led to evidence of human occupation in the area harking back 20,000 years. Crafted by Mother Earth from sub-volcanic rock, Cradle Mountain stands 1,545 meters above sea level.
Devils in the Dark
Devils in the dark showcases the iconic Tasmanian devil at night.This amazing animal can be seen at many parks and zoos but the opportunity to see this nocturnal animal come to life after dark in an as wild as possible setting is very special and unique. Devils in the dark was established by a wildlife expert with 30 years of experience viewing Tasmanian devils in the wild places of Tasmania.
