Lake St Clair: is the deepest in Australia (190 metres / 623 feet), scooped out by glaciers 10,000 years ago during the Ice Age. High dolerite cliffs rise sheer from the water and there is a drowned moraine at the southern end. The lake, in which fishing and boating are allowed, is surrounded by forest and is the southern gateway to the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. There is a regular ferry the length of the lake, used by visitors and by walkers on the Overland Track who like to do a little of the journey by water.
