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.
There is a cafe inside the information centre building, we took a cup of coffee and had breakfast before departure.
The Bus Stop 5 is located near Dove Lake, which is the final destination of the shuttle bus. Our walk started from here.
There are a lot of walkways around Cradle Mountain we can choose based on your preferences.
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.
CRADLE MOUNTAIN LODGE and WALKWAYS AROUND THE ACCOMMODATION
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.
In the vicinity of Cradle Mountain lodge, there were some walkways available in which all had good atmosphere.
Again, all of them were sooo beautiful.
LET’S SEE WALLABY & WOMBAT
In the evening we got out of our room to see wildlife in the premises of the Cradle Mountain Lodge.
Hi Wombat please look this way..
… you must be Walla…. please look this way..?
Hi! Thanks for showing your cute face.
I was so excited..
Even though I actually took a lot of photos in order to capture these moments, they did not leave away. Thanks to all.
Furthermore, a wombat came close to the lodge we stayed, please see a footage below,
Overall we had a relaxing time in the Cradle Mountain Lodge.
