Stop at Lake St Clair on the way from Hobart to Strahan?

Hi users:)

We are wondering what a good resting spot might be on the drive from Hobart to Strahan? We are talking a lunch spot+spend an hour or two walking (not an overnight).

Is Lake St Clair accessible from that direction (Lyell hway?)? We will have our 2year old with us, and a regular 2-wheel drive hire car, so prefer to drive on good sealed surfaces, and not have to do long strenuous climbs. :)

Thanks heaps for any suggestions:)

Yes, you could stop at Lake St Clair. There's a cafe/restaurant there for lunch. And it's flat.

And just beyond it off the highway is the Wall in the Wilderness, which is a must see.

Also just past Derwent Bridge/Lake St Clair on the way to Strahan are the Nelson Falls. These falls are lovely falls, and are easily reached after a short walk on a very flat well maintained track and well worth the small effort.

Hi,

I agree the Wall at Derwent Bridge is amazing and well worth a long visit.
