I thought hiking at the end of winter would be fine, but it was cold and foggy at Cradle Mountain! The park was still incredible with amazing views! Some of the trails were steep rocks with chains to hold on to.
I took the ferry from Melbourne to Tasmania (known as Tassie). I booked a fairytale cabin next to an apple orchard! I was provided free gin & brandy tastings from the onsite distillery. The host even provided me with dinner and great conversation!
I hiked for six miles in Denali National Park. The views were incredible! It got extremely windy and cold at the top, though.
