Dove Lake

We looked at the map and decided to travel to the west coast. Our plan was to camp at Tullah as the man at the information centre in Burnie said it was a very pretty place. We visited, but every thing was closed and as we still unable to free camp we continued on to Rosebery. It was getting late in the day and we thought it would be worth staying as we could travel north to Cradle Mountain and also south to Strahan.
We were getting much better at putting up the van and in no time we were settled for the night. An early start next morning saw us heading off to Cradle Mountain. A winding road and lots of road kill later, not our kill, we arrived at the National Park. On the ferry to Devonport we bought a Park pass for $60 which gives a car load of up to 8 people unlimited access to the parks for a couple of months. It also meant we could have a free bus ride within the park and walk to where we wanted.
We decided to take the walk around Dove Lake.
A great walk and in just under 2 hours we completed the 6.4 km circuit.
We enjoyed a coffee at the ranger's station and started dressed warmly, but by the time we had finished it was down to t-shirts.
