After six full days of travelling and exploring we decided to take it easy on our first day in Hobart. It was also a good chance to catch up on some practical things, like getting some groceries and doing some washing. So we decided to spend most of the morning at our accommodation before heading […]
After 3 nights at Cradle Mountain our next and final destination in Tasmania was a 7 night stay in Hobart. Before our trip I was asked why we didn’t spent some nights in other places, why the 7 night stay in Hobart? It was an easy question to answer. For my wife and I we […]
Originally when I was researching for this trip I planned to do a long walk on the trails above Dove Lake. The exact route I planned to take was as follows: Dove Lake car park, Mount Campbell, Hansons Peak, Twisted Lakes, Artists Pool, Face Track, Marions Lookout, Wombat Pool, Lake Lilla, Dove Lake car park.

We decided to take it easy on our first full day at Cradle Mountain. Our plan was for all of us to do the Enchanted Walk in the morning while I would do the Dove Lake Circuit on my own in the afternoon.

Consequently we arrived in Brisbane at 3:15 pm with our flight to Launceston scheduled to leave at 5 pm. However, when we attempted to […]
