Vale of Belvoir is one of only a small number of free campsites within driving distance of Cradle Mountain, the other being Lake Gairdner. The campsite itself is extremely basic, as it is just a circle marked with large boulders. To access and camp at the Vale of Belvoir camping area, you need to be completely self-contained ánd have a 4WD vehicle. The road to the campsite is quite rough and gets significantly worse following heavy rain or snow. It is possible, in the right conditions and with great care, to access using a 2WD vehicle with good ground clearance, however, we don't recommend it. As the camping area is remote, difficult to access, and subject to changeable weather conditions it is possible that you could have the entire camping area to yourself, and the high numbers of wallabies, pademelons, and wombats that are common in this part of Tasmania. Lake Lea is immediately next to the campsite; the road that leads to Lake Lea is full of wildlife and makes for a great mountain bike ride, morning or evening walk. There is also a boardwalk with some information about the area, and platypus sightings occur on occasion. There are no costs to camp at Vale of Belvoir, and bookings can't be made. Cradle Mountain is world-renowned for having some of the best bushwalking and hiking tracks in the world, with the Overland Track one Australia's best-known multi-day walks.
