Snowy day at Cradle Mountain, Tasmania

The second post of our Australia series begins with our first destination in Tasmania. The visit to Cradle Mountain was one of our fondest memories of Tasmania. The main reason behind this was because it was the first time Anders saw snow! Staying there for just one night was probably our only regret. We headed out to Dove Lake for the best views in the area, but the weather was gloomy and snowy that day. So, here are our favourite shots of our journey to a gloomy Dove Lake!

Looking back at these old photos, they really aren’t the best photos at all. We were just starting out and the harsh conditions forced us to show our inexperience. But hey, it is what it is! We’ve come a long way, and we’ll keep improving. Stay tuned for the next post!

Note: If you’re travelling to Dove Lake or other scenic spots along the way, we recommend to take the shuttle bus. Private cars are only allowed in and out of the area before and after the shuttle bus hours. That might keep you stuck in the area for a little too long!
