SOLD to a wonderful person from the UK that bought a Medium Framed Print of "CRADLE MOUNTAIN – MONOCHROME

Cradle Mountain forms the northern end of the wild Cradle Mt – Lake St Clair National Park, itself a part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The jagged contours of Cradle Mountain epitomise the feel of a wild landscape, while ancient rainforest and alpine heathlands, buttongrass and stands of colourful deciduous beech provide a range of environments to explore.

Visitors should bear in mind, however, that the wild weather of the Tasmanian highlands often shrouds the mountain in cloud.

There are a number of excellent walks in the area, including the Dove Lake Loop Track which takes you through the stunning Ballroom Forest, an area of cool temperate rainforest nestled against the slopes of the mountain. Other walks include the Weindorfers Forest walk. Of course, the area also marks the start of the famous
