Tasmania's astonishing Cradle Mountain Huts Walk

Livinia Nixon enjoys nothing more than a holiday that presents beautiful scenery and some challenges as well.
She didn't have to travel far to fulfil both wishes. A flight to Launceston and heading two-and-a-half hours west to the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park and it was all there.
She joined a Cradle Mountain Huts Walk. The entire Overland Track is 65 kilometres long and is done over six days. It winds through spectacular terrain, ranging from sheer mountains, temperate rainforest, wild rivers and alpine plains, all in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
It has a well-deserved national and international reputation as one of the great wilderness bushwalks.
