Cradle Mountain is located at the northern tip of Cradle Mountain – Lake St. Clair National Park. There are a number of walks to do around Cradle Mountain. We chose to do the Dove Lake circuit, which is the most popular Cradle Mountain walk. Mainly because the walk affords spectacular views of Cradle Mountain as you circle the lake.
We were quite lucky to have a warm(ish), sunny day for our walk. The weather at Cradle Mountain is quite changeable and the Rangers warn you to be prepared for all types of conditions. We’d spoken to one backpacker in Hobart who’d started her walk at Cradle Mountain on a warm, sunny day wearing shorts and a t-shirt. By the end of the hike it was snowing and she was freezing!
Along the route we noticed a lot of square animal poo piled on the boardwalk. Apparently a Wombat is responsible for the square poo. Let’s not think too hard about the anatomical attributes required to produce square scat.
