First a quick stop at The Strahan Harbour Woodworking Shop to see what they can do with Huon Pine. Climbed the big Henty sand dunes where the pine forest meets the coastal dunes and then on to Zeehan for a final big shop at the supermarket. Morning cuppa at Rosebery picnic area and on to our accommodation for the next 3 nights at Cradle Mountain Wilderness Village. We have a two bedroom cottage surrounded by bush. Spare beds if you want to come and stay????

As really bad weather is predicted for the next few days, (maybe snow), we decided to try and get a good walk in for the afternoon. After a quick stop at the National Parks Information Centre we drove to the top car park and headed off on the Dove Lake Circuit walk. 'Oh No!' Pat didn't charge her camera battery. Took us exactly 2 hours to complete the circuit. Cradle Mountain is the Asian Tourist centre of Tassie!

Spectacular.

A cosy evening in our cottage. Our plans for the next few days???? Walking in the mountains or, if the weather is bad, we will uses this as a base and explore the North Western region. See what comes out of the Southern Ocean.
