Starting behind the Visitor Centre at the end of Lake St Claire Road, Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, this Aboriginal cultural heritage walk takes you on a figure-of-eight loop via the Watersmeet, Larmairremener tabelti and Platypus Bay tracks. Read the information boars along the track to learn more about the Larmairremener people. The walk starts on the Watersmeet Track, following an old road that was constructed to allow for limited logging after bushfires in the 1960s. You'll pass fragrant tea tree, wattle and banksia through buttongrass sedgeland to the Watersmeet Bridge. The track leads toward Platypus Bay. As the name tells you, you might spot a platypus there if lucky. The walk returns via the Larmairremener tabelti track, following the ridges formed by retreating glaciers during the ice ages. This hike can be completed as a loop walk or split into three shorter walks. At their longest, these walks combine to form a figure-of-eight loop. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
