Tasmania – The First Week

Oct 4  Cradle Mountain, 1,545 mtrs high, forms the northern end of the wild Cradle Mt – Lake St Clair National Park, itself a part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.The jagged contours of Cradle Mountain epitomise the feel of a wild glaciated landscape, while ancient rainforest and alpine heathlands, buttongrass and stands of colourful deciduous beech provide a range of environments to explore. Icy streams cascading out of rugged mountains, stands of ancient pines mirrored in the still waters of glacial lakes and a wealth of wildlife ensure there is always something to captivate you.

We stop just under the mountain itself and follow the 6 km circuit trail around Dove Lake, at 1,000 mtrs with glorious views of the mountain from all angles.
