Carol was always looking for different ways to take landscape photographs. I think this image showcasing the Dove Lake Boatshed and Cradle Mountain is typical of her approach ~ Greg Hale

Cradle Mountain: Dove Lake Boatshed

The Dove Lake Circuit at Cradle Mountain is a popular inclusion among Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks, and more specifically the Western Wilderness category. The 6km journey leads the walker past the boatshed and around Dove Lake beneath the famous peaks of Cradle Mountain on primarily boardwalk paths. It’s a highlight during any visit to the Cradle MountainLake St Clair National Park in the state’s north west region.

Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service list the Dove Lake Boatshed (on the northwestern shores of the lake) as a feature of the circuit, together with Glacier Rock and the Ballroom Forest. Apparently the boathouse (circa 1940) was built using King Billy pine by Lionell Connell, the first ranger stationed at Cradle Mountain National Park. Also according to Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service, the Dove Lake boatshed remains substantially unaltered from its original form, although some restoration work was completed in 1983.
