Cradle Mountain National Park Images at Ronny Creek and Dove Lake and Wombats Feeding in the Scrub

After a couple of days in Strahan on the West Coast, it's a 420 Km drive to Swansea on the East Coast. The plan was to break the journey up by stopping at Cradle Mountain National Park for a two-hour walk around Dove Lake. Best laid plans – we left Strahan in good weather stopping to take the early morning landscape images of the Wild River National Park, then driving north towards the mountains we ran into bad weather and snow at the higher altitudes. The snow-covered road to Cradle Mountain National Park was passable and we were able drive down to Ronny Creek and Dove Lake, but snowy conditions were not favourable for a walk around the lake, photography was restricted to take images around the carpark areas.

After leaving the park while on our way to Swansea and driving along Cradle Mountain Road (C132), we spotted a wombat (Vombatus ursinus) crazing on the scrubland near Weaning Paddock Creak – a great wildlife photography opportunity.
