Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park VKFF-0117

Marija and I left Mole Creek (16th November 2022) and headed to the northern section of the Cradle Mountain Lake St Clair National Park VKFF-0117. We had booked in for the Sunset Experience at Devils@Cradle.

We had seen the southern side of the park during our stay at Lake St Clair Lodge, and it was interesting to get a quick look at the northern side of the park.

We had a little bit of time up our sleeve, so we decided to do a quick activation of the park from the 4WD. We ran the Icom IC-7000, 100 watts, and the Codan 9350 self tuning antenna.

Marija worked the following station on 20m SSB:-

  1. VK6MB/p (VKFF-2955)

We then headed to Devils@Cradle which is a Tasmanian Devil sanctuary located on the edge of the National Park. It is a breeding and conservation facility for the Tasmanian Devil, the Spotted Quoll, and the Eastern Quoll.

We were able to get up and close with a little Tasmanian Devil joey.

After the Tassie Devils were fed, it was our time to indulge in a glass of wine, beer and some sweet treats around the campfire.

It was an amazing experience at Devils@Cradle. We then slowly made our way back to Lemonthyme Wilderness Retreat. On our way out of the park we encountered a Wombat.
