It’s a rare day that you get to experience Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake beneath a cloudless, vivid-blue Spring sky. Impressive huh? @egak was lucky enough to capture this scene on a recent visit to Tassie’s most iconic landmark and the crowning glory of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The iconic boatshed that stands on the north-western shore of the Dove was built in 1940 by the first Ranger at Cradle Mountain, Lionell Connell. Constructed largely of King Billy pine, a native conifer found only in Tasmania’s alpine regions, the boatshed has to be one of Tasmania’s most photographed buildings. The setting definitely results in some solid daydreaming on the edge of the lake! Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Kel.
