Cra­dle Moun­tain > Pen­guin

On the Road Tasmania - - News -

Ex­plore ma­jes­tic Cra­dle Moun­tain and sur­round­ing Dove Lake on foot, climb to Mar­i­ons Look­out or opt for a horse­back tour. Those af­ter a bit of R&R shouldn’t miss the Wald­heim Alpine Spa at Pep­pers Cra­dle Moun­tain Lodge where the views are as good as the treat­ments. Once re­ju­ve­nated, head north along the C132 via Moina and Kindred, where the soil is so red and lus­cious it looks al­most ed­i­ble, to­wards the sea­side towns of Ulver­stone. Spend a cou­ple of hours here trawl­ing the town’s sec­ond-hand shops or vis­it­ing the mu­seum to learn about the re­gion’s pi­o­neer­ing his­tory. Con­tinue to Pen­guin, where you’ll be stay­ing the night. Moun­tain bike en­thu­si­asts should take on the Pen­guin MTB Park, a 4km sin­gle trail suit­able for be­gin­ners as well as more ad­vanced riders. If you’re here be­tween Septem­ber and March, be­fore bed, head down to the wa­ter to glimpse the name­sake birds wan­der­ing ashore to nest.
