Cradle Mountain Huts - Lisa's tale

16 Feb 2012

Thank you to Grant & Gretel for being such passionate and consummate guides.

Both my father and I have wanted to complete this fabulous walk for some time and being able to take advantage of the guide’s depth of local knowledge; enthusiasm for the vegetation and animals of the overland track made the experience that much more rounded. Both guides carried their packs with ease and undertook their many duties with aplomb and good humour. Thanks to Grant for encouraging me to swim in the crystal clean and chilly waters, it has renewed my love of the outdoors and of climbing mountains. We were both impressed with the green and environmentally friendly way that the trip was organised.

Our trip was a seminal experience for both of us, we shall be singing the praises of the Cradle Mountain Huts far and wide.
