BLOWN AWAY

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Travel & Indulgence -

HIK­ING boots and a cosy jacket are de rigueur in win­ter at Tas­ma­nia’s Cra­dle Moun­tain Lodge, where a va­ri­ety of tracks wrap the grounds like a blan­ket. Most are lit­tle more than a me­an­der, in­clud­ing the 1km En­chanted Stroll or the 2km King Billy Track, but all weave spec­tac­u­lar paths through but­ton­grass, tea-tree, eu­ca­lypt and mossy myr­tle. Wom­bats, wal­la­bies and echid­nas are fa­mil­iar sights and, for the lucky few walk­ers, platy­pus may sur­face as you pass their icy streams. Tour guides are also avail­able to give lodge guests ex­tra in­sights into this nat­u­ral won­der­land. More: cradle­moun­tain­lodge.com.au.
