One of Tasmania's 60 Great Short Walks is the Dove Lake Circuit at Cradle Mountain.
This walk is best done in a clockwise direction, and it takes you beneath the towering spires of Cradle Mountain which is also the start of the famous Overland Track walk.
The walk is 5.7km long and it took us about 2 hours plus stops to complete.

We needed to make sure that we had adequate clothing as the weather can change quickly, as it did on this day with a few light snow showers.
Our No Worries Safaris Backpacker tour stopped off here in the early afternoon amidst some brisk weather, and we are all looking forward to our Night Safari (wildlife spotting) tonight.
