Interesting natural scenery is one thing Tasmania doesn't lack and this lookout/stopping point on one of the main tourist routes through the island is as good a spot as many others to take a few happy snaps. There are no facilities here, it is very much just a place to pull off the highway, stretch your legs and look at the view.

Recommended for a five minute stop over even if the weather is inclement because that can be when you get the most striking shots.

While on the road from Strahan and Queenstown heading to Lake Saint Clair, we stopped for a few minutes at the Saddle. The change in scenery from the last few days down on the west coast was quite stark. Button grass and eucalypt trees are very different from the fern trees, myrtles and Huon pines. The view even on a wet drizzly day was lovely. It's just a road side stop with no facilities but it's high up on the mountains after a very windy drive. Great for a quick break and nature at its best.

This part of Tasmania is quite unique with all the glacial valleys and dolerite mountains rising high above.
Dozens of Mountain peaks all at about 1100m to 1400m above sea level

On Lyell Highway, 10 minutes from Derwent Bridge (traveling towards Queenstown), there is a lookout, that will allow to enjoy a nice view of Mount William, plus giving you information on the zone and the next things to visit when traveling west (Franklin River trail, Frenchman cap, Donaghys Hill lookout, Nelson falls). It also marks the geological difference between the east and west coast of Tasmania.
