Five days Travel Tasmania (4/5), Cradle Mountain

In the morning we tried to enter the Cradle Mountain national park by car however it was not allowed due to traffic congestion inside the park, meaning we needed to utilize Shuttle Bus running every 20 minutes as shown below. The departure point is at Visitor Centre.

Min. 5 degC & Max. 13 degC… yes, an outer wear is essential even if it is in December (Summer season) at Cradle Mt.

We next took the shuttle bus service from the Bus stop 5 and got off at Bus stop 4 to take a board walk, where you may find wombat. (luckily we saw a couple of wombats)

I heard Tasmania has the world’s cleanest air, which seems to be true. Let’s take a deep breath. Really fresh.



After a couple of activities we moved to Cradle Mountain Lodge that was the highlight of this travel. This accommodation provides a quality customer service. In its premises, there are many cottages and walkways in-between them and the central building containing the reception and restaurants.

This accommodation was really excellent and hence I will need to summarize my experiences here in a separate post.
