Lynn & I have wanted to see the new Visitor Centre at Cradle Mountain for some weeks now, but the weather has been so cold at night, that there was a danger of black ice on the road, and I didn't want to risk it.

But today dawned bright, clear, and warm enough that there was no danger of ice, so we jumped on the mighty Super Tenere and set off. Well, it turned out to be a perfect ride, no wind, no traffic, magnificent scenery, and one of the best, twistiest roads in Tasmania. I had a ball.

The visitor centre is a most impressive building, but I was surprised at how small the internal rooms are. The shop and cafe in particular, are tiny. I have seen upwards of a thousand cars, and dozens of buses parked here in the high season, probably 5000 people, and I don't think this facility is big enough.

However, with the pandemic and lockdown, there were very few people today, and we had no trouble. We sat outside to have our coffee and cake, and I was soon mobbed by about 20 hungry Currawongs with big, pointy beaks, who ate most of my cake. We have been to Dove Lake and Cradle Mountain many times, so we didn't bother going out there today.
