Lake St Claire – Springboard to Cradle Mountain!

  Lake St Claire is a much visited place for a variety of reasons. One being the starting point for the Overland Track to Cradle Mountain, taking about 5-6 days trekking though the wilderness of Tasmania. I was not equipped with tent or appropriate clothing for this apparently amazing journey.

It took many weeks to work out what I needed to be self sufficient for most of the journey to promote my books in the smaller towns, to take glorious images of this incredible country and create another book along the way. Being so compact most things need to have an essential or dual purpose – little room for unessential things and be lightweight. Choosing the High Top over the Pop Top Campervan, … Continue reading ‘Bugsy’ – my home to tour Australia!
