Travel Blogs from Sheffield


A travel blog entry by coralee

On Monday, we left our motel in Launceston to start our journey to the Cradle Mountains where we would be staying the night. On the way we took a detour through the Tamar Valley and made a stop at Platypus world. Here we saw platypuses/platypi(!?) and echidnas. The guides told us so much about the marsupials and I think they are both fascinating. Stopped off in Shefield 'town of murals' before the windy roads that led us to our chateau in the cradle ...

Great Walks and Climbs around Cradle Mountain

... paths and enjoy the landscape as the vegetation changed from moorland to alpine herb fields with delicate daisies and cushion plants.

After our good packed lunch, a short rest and many photos, we headed back down to the valley but this time following the signs to Ronny Creek.

There was a 530m walk to the lookout - saw lots of pretty flowers along the track. Then it was back into the car and we continued along the same road to find Lake Mackenzie. It was only about 7k and we arrived at the end of the road and took some more photos. Not quite as high here - only 1126m ASL and the temperature had risen by ...

Day 23 (Continued) - Sheffield

... plastic bags - no questions asked. Around 1pm, we came back to the van and by now, it had started to drizzle. We warmed up leftovers from last night to have for lunch. After lunch we set off for a drive around 2:30pm. David is a bit over driving ATM and handed the wheel over to me. Our first destination was the Rowing Course at Lake Barrington. This took us through West Kentish, Roland, Promised Land and Lower Crackpot. After leaving Lake Barrington, we drove ...
