Tasmania — Cradle Mountain — Chapter 18 "Watarrka Sunrise"



Tasmania, the little island state situated just below the continent/country of Australia 
has Australia's only native deciduous tree..
the Fagus

Here it is in full autumn color.




The other very special tree in this corner of the country is 

the King Billy Pine,


a beautiful evergreen that rises to the heavens







Dove Lake sits right below Cradle Mountain in rugged wilderness located almost in the center of the Island. A week's trek  on the Overland Track will take you to the southern beaches of this magnificent landora trek around the lake, about two and a half miles around will give you a good idea of the natural beauty of this southern hemisphere island
