One of the most beautiful places on Earth Jul 06, 2011
Nestled on the Tasmanian plateau, Cradle Mountain is one of the most well known Mountains in Australia for scenic getaways. The entire Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park is set amongst interestic rock formations and beatiful high altitude (for Australia) lakes, relatively untouched by development & civilisation.

I did this as part of a self-drive group and the highlight was definately the walk & climb - there are a myriad of walks to choose from, and an easy walk to the base of the mountain leads to a bit of a scramble climb that requires no special equipment or expertise, just a decent level of fitness.

The morning mist meant that the mountain was obscured during the morning, but cleared quickly as we reached the summit with it's spectacular views.
