World famous Cradle Mountain is our destination for today. This
morningfs drive takes us through the historic mining towns of Zeehan,
Rosebery and Tullah where we hear of the rich history of the hardy

postcard selfie time! But the area is best seen on foot and walking

can enjoy the challenging climb to the highest lookout in the park,
Marionfs lookout. If you would prefer something more leisurely,
the walk around Dove Lake is suitable for everyone with scenic stops
all along the shore and the beautiful Ballroom forest. Whichever
walk you choose be sure to keep your eyes peeled for platypus, eagles
and the adorable wombats (but be careful while they may look cute
and cuddly they can tend to be a bit grumpy, so keep your distance!)
With weary legs and full memory cards we hit the road en route to
Launceston. With a stop along the way at Sheffield Town of Murals,
we then replenish our energy with a cheese tasting session at the
