Walking With Wombats, Hiking In Tasmania
Cradle mountain and much of Tasmania is brimming with natural beauty and rugged wild landscapes. I spent a day hiking some of Cradle mountain's day hikes through forest, grass lands, and hills, running across exotic looking wild flowers, birds, an echidna, and this adorable wombat. Wombats are nocturnal but can be see out at dawn or dusk. This one was out just in time to bid us farewell on our day of hiking and leave us wishing we could spent a week exploring these trails. For serious backpackers there is a six day "overland track" hike through this world heritage beauty. I have attached Tasmania's National Park webpage for those seeking more information.
