Drive to Cradle mountain breath taking. Ample car and caravan parking at visitor centre. Take the hike around dove lake- 2 to 3 hours or just take shuttle to view the lake and Cradle Mountain. Visitor centre has toilets and liscenced cafe.

This wonderful natural beauty is made easily accessible by new Eco friendly shuttle buses to take you from the Visitor Centre down to Dove Lake.Warm gear should be taken year round due to sudden changes and especially if doing a longer walk or an overnight hike. Incredibly pretty scenes every where you look with snow capping surrounding mountains most of the year.To simplify your visit a Parks Pass can be pre-purchased allowing free of charge travel on their shuttle buses..

A return visit to this natural wonder of Tasmania's Northern Highlands.

Drove to the parks Visitor Centre, found parking easily then purchased a park entry, with shuttle bus tickets provided. Bus arrived within minutes and off I went.

On the drive in Wombats were out strolling and feeding. An echidna (Spiny Anteater) also made an impromptu appearance.

This time I visited Dove Lake. It was cool upon arrival, but clear and very pleasant walking temperature. Firstly, to Gibraltar Rock (formed by glacial movements) for the view and many shots of the mountain in spectacularly clear conditions.

Whilst people filtered through and past I was able to sit back take in the serenity and relax. Twenty minutes passed and the weather moves in above the mountain. So off I trotted, bit the weather caught me at the end of the path where snow.began falling! A glorious experience, particularly when children nearby squealed with delight.

Back at the Visitors Centre I was able to warm up, get a good quality coffee and sandwich; although exclusivity meant the coat was quite steep!

This was a fantastic visit and I will be returning to spend more time on the short walks around the lake or to the nearby sites.
