Cradle Valley National Park is 168,000 hectares of World Heritage parkland, full of lakes, mountains, and forests. We take a couple of hours to have a walk around Dove Lake, on of Tasmania's best short walks, which gives great views across the water, as well as off the mountains.
Moving on, we head over to the west coast, and stop at some more dunes on our way to Strahan. These are the Henty Dunes, and are even bigger than on the east coast. Still only around 30m, they pale in comparison to Namibia's 350m monsters. Still, it's all white stand, and the start from the very edge of the forest, and run right down to the sea. We chat with one of the locals, who tells us that when he first visited the dunes 15 years ago, they were a fair old distance from the car park. Today, they start from the very edge of the car park. Really shows how much they've moved!
