Flag of Australia  , Tasmania,
Saturday, February 2, 2013

Had an early breakfast at Cradle Mountain Lodge and bought
our park permits. Drove 7k to Dove
Lake.  This is at the base of Cradle
Mountain.  Hiked 4 miles around the lake
in about 2 hrs.  Spectacular
scenery.  Unfortunately some of the
mountain was in clouds but it was still amazing to walk the wooden boardwalk
around 80% of the trail.  An Austrian man
named Waldheim discovered this area in 1932.

Then we drove back the same winding road and on to Hobart
for about 4 hrs.  In Tasmania we drove
another 400 miles.  Stopped by the
Salamanca Saturday Market but we were just a bit late. Leaving tomorrow for
Christchurch, New Zealand to pick up our RV for 3 weeks.  We have to fly back to Melbourne and then on
to Christchurch, NZ.
