“The beauty of “Cradle Country”, that rugged wilderness area fringing the mountains of central Tasmania, is almost legendary.  With its highlands and lakes, its swamps and button grass plains, it is essentially a land of contrasts, both attracting and repelling man.  Even the weather is so unpredictable that snow has been known to fall there in the middle of summer.
At one time the Cradle Country was pure wilderness, broached only by the hardiest and most dedicated of explorers; today, criss-crossed by tracks, it is a mecca for bushwalkers and tourists from all over Australia.  Yet among all that breathtaking scenery there are still areas so remote, so thickly wooded, that no white man has ever been able to penetrate them.”
