Dove Lake Boat Shed, Cradle Mountain, Tasmania, Australia

Cradle Mountain, Tasmania, Australia

Ever since I was a small boy, growing up in a keen bush walking family Cradle Mountain was heralded as the Holy Grail, the oasis, a land of such sweeping grandeur it would bring tears to the eyes of all who beheld it. Having visited many times over the years I must say that the reality still lives up to those childhood dreams and expectations. The park is without a doubt the most beautiful in Australia that I have seen.

Though the weather can be temperamental and there are now such large queues flocking to hike "The Overland Trail" that bookings and trail fees are essential during peak times, the park remains full of that deeply penetrating wonderland feel. Reflections abound with many a "tarn" dappling the landscape. Unique Pencil Pines and Pandanis grow amongst towering cliffs and deep valleys filled with crystal clear blue lakes. It is truly a spectacular place just to stand, breath and exist.

For day walkers access to Dove Lake is easy, with a sealed road right to the lake shore. More serious hikers wanting to strike out for the likes of Barn Bluff, Mt Ossa (Tasmania's highest peak), and on to Lake St. Claire will need to allow three or four days walking in a good climate. While there are huts, a tent must still be taken in case of crowding or weather issues. For those who like their nature experience less bold or lack the fitness I'm told private companies offer guided treks with more up market accommodation along the trial, hot meals, your packs carried for you, etc.

Tasmania's Cradle Mountain National Park would have to be the cream of the crop for hikers who visit from all over the world. For a less crowed alternative, try the Walls Of Jerusalem National Park, an equally picturesque trek.
