Lake Gairdner free camping, Moina Cradle Mountain central highlands Tasmania is a relatively good size privately owned paddock along the edge of spectacular Lake Gairdner. The Lake Gairdner camping spot is popular with locals who like to fish in Lake Gairdner, with campers who look after the area welcome. Entry to this camping spot is via a dirt road off the main road that connects the small town of Moina to Cradle Mountain. Just before a white bridge, you will find a relatively small camping area to the left, and immediately over the bridge another camping area to the right which is larger. There are no facilities whatsoever so campers must be fully self-sufficient. Please note this part of Tasmania is subject to high winds, high rainfall and heavy snow at times, so anyone camping at Lake Gairdner must be well equipped. Lake Gairdner camping is suitable for campervans, caravans and motorhomes, however, please note the gravel road leading to this campsite is narrow and windy so care must be taken – especially after heavy rain. Lake Gairdner is located on the banks of this hydro lake. Often if the campground at Cradle Mountain is full this campground can offer a good alternative, but you must be fully self-sufficient can carry your own fresh drinking water and firewood. To access the Lake Gairdner campground, turn west off the Cradle Mountain Rd C132, 1 km south of Moina. Follow a dirt road and just before a white bridge, you will find an unshaded open paddock where you can camp at no cost.
