We woke to a very frosty morning of -5° outside and inside! There was frost covering all of outside including the car which we had fun cleaning off. We had the lovely surprise of Mt Roland towering behind our cabin with amazing views of the surrounds. It was time to head off to Cradle Mountain with a beautiful scenic drive. We headed up to the Visitor Centre to stopped to refuel on sausage rolls for the boys and buy our park tickets. We caught the shuttle buses up to Dove Lake. ...
