It was the Australia Day long weekend and Tasmania was the place to be. We flew in to form a multinational foursome and explored the north including a very big walk to a rather spectacular Cradle Mountain, which while usually covered with cloud and or rain/sleet/snow, was perfection for us today (Monday) under a warm blue sky. We managed to scale the peak off the track - not intentional at first - but worth every step in the wrong direction. Climbing from peak to peak at the top was an exercise in vertigo control, and truly spectacular. We also managed a rare sighting of a wild Tasmanian Devil. Too much fun. I'm going back for more. Thanks guys!
