Here are some pictures I took at Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National park in northern Tasmania on Monday 29th of December 1997.

Cradle Mountain is a part the Tasmania Wilderness World Heritage Area and it "...epitomises the feel of a wild landscape. Icy streams cascade out of rugged mountains, stands of ancient pines mirrored in the still waters of glacial lakes and a wealth of wildlife ensure there is always something to captivate you."
(from park brochure)

Spotted these nice little 'flowery' things... hey, I'm a videoeditor, not a botanist!

Some more interesting plants as we walk along the Face Track.

Andy rests his weiry bod in the Ballroom Forest
before heading back to the carpark, another hours walk.

Looking back where we'd been... we can down the mountainside
and into the Ballroom Forest on the right.
