The last day of my trip to Tasmania was mainly dedicated to the most well-known and most visited National Park, Cradle Mountain. The park is located in a mountainous region in the North-Western part of the island and encompasses a large area between Cradle Valley in the North and Lake St Clair in the South. The main national park is about Cradle Valley though, and when I got there it was already crowded enough that traffic was closed for normal vehicles and visitors had to use the shuttle bus to the various stops in the park. I first got to the final stop at Dove Lake and did the hike to Marions lookout as well as the circuit walk around the lake, which both provided fantastic looks on Cradle Mountain and the surrounding area. I then followed some parts of the boardwalk that runs through almost the whole valley, and finished with a few smaller walks around the Interpretation Centre.
