Trekking in the Cradle Mountain
While walking tracks cover much of Tasmania, there was always a gap between the major national parks and the northern coast. To fill this gap the North West Walking Club, marked a walking track from the seaside town of Penguin to the Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park. This is known as the Penguin Cradle Trail.
The track is not well known with visitors. In the north, parts of the track are often obscured by bracken and fallen trees.
The area also is the homeland of the Tasmanian Tiger which - people say - was extinct in 1930, but rediscovered again the last years.
