Are you just driving there, or there and back in one day??
If you are just driving there, easy, but if it is a return journey, it's doable but won't give you much time to look around and enjoy Strahan.
Yes, it's easily doable if you go via Burnie.
About 3.5 hours.
Don't go via the Central Plateau.
That sounds good.
There are lots of walks from Lake St Clair, however it's a Six Day Walk from there to see Cradle Mountain: http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/?base=7771
You should be aware the Cradle Mountain area is much more scenic for walking than the Lake St Clair area. I'd recommend doing day walks in the Cradle Mtn area (Dove Lake or Crater Lake walks).Edited: 29 September 2010, 07:26
There are so many beautiful walks in the north of the national park...short or longer.... easy or hard....
Many activities of course around Strahan then if you're heading towards Hobart via Derwent Bridge and the Southern end of the National Park there are a few more interesting walks along the way too. One just on the road side, between Queenstown and Derwent Bridge, which is very easy, is the Franklin River nature trail.
Derwent bridge has some lovely cottages too and makes a lovely stopover on the way to Hobart.
Hope you enjoy your holiday to paradise!
