Cradle Mountain Huts Walk    March 2011

I had the great experience of completing the six day walk with a group of fellow West Australians in March this year.


We brought perfect weather with us and our guides Tonia and Sam were absolutely outstanding. To see you win Gourmet Traveller's "Best Adventure Tourism Award" does not surprise me at all as our treck was truly one of life's great experiences. Organisation, facilities, care, outstanding. Congratulations! I meant to make one small suggestion when we completed our walk, but forgot to do so. Your "what to carry list" was excellent however perhaps you could consider adding four handkerchiefs to the list. It would save people bringing tissues which must be disposed of as rubbish , they could be easily washed and dried after use, and could also be used in a medical emergency situation. Just a thought! We have had no trouble recommending you to our friends several of whom have you on their list.

It was interesting when we all went out to dinner in Launceston on the evening that we finished the walk. Someone said "can anyone find a fault or criticise anything about the whole six days". Silence ensued. We could not find a single fault.
