Cape Pillar has sheer cliff faces falling into the ocean, a great place for a dramatic natural landscape. Hike along to the beautiful Dove Lake which reflects the jagged Cradle Mountain.

On the west coast of Tasmania is Lake Rosebery, a man-made reservoir. You can hike around and boat on the lake, which is surrounded by mountains and forest.
