Lake St Clair or leeawulenna is a natural freshwater lake located in the Central Highlands area of Tasmania, Australia. The lake forms the southern end of the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. It has an area of approximately 45 square kilometres (17 sq mi), and a maximum depth of 160 metres (520 ft), making it Australia’s deepest lake.
From 1911 the beginnings of the Overland Track to Cradle Mountain began to form, with the route officially blazed by Bert Nichols in 1931.
The lake is fed by Narcissus River, Cuvier River, and Hamilton Creek and marks the start of the River Derwent
A guesthouse was built at Cynthia Bay in 1930, followed by improved parking, camping and visitor facilities. The lake has been a popular tourist destination, with most tourists visiting to walk, photograph and learn about the history.
Following a decision by the Tasmanian Government to allow development in national parks and conservations areas an ‘in principle’ permit was granted for the establishment of an ‘eco-friendly’ resort at Pumphouse Point at Lake St Clair; completed in 2015.

We did a lovely walk which took us around the perimeter of the lake close to the Park Headquarters and then through some wonderful forest to Watersmeet and then onto Platypus Bay. Unfortunately, we were not lucky enough to spot this elusive creature.
On the return section of our circular walk, we came onto the main trail that runs from Cradle Mountain down to Lake St Clair. This is the classic
