But what if you have free time in Tasmania due to an event of nature taking over?

In this article we share some comments and a terrific video by Anna Kwa.  Anna and her family were on a “short” break to Tasmania but due to events beyond their control, the short visit turned into 17 days.

Over to Anna:

We were on a round Tasmania driving trip from 3-12 June but ended up staying for 17 days due to the volcanic ash cloud.

Years ago my husband and I arrived in Tasmania for a short trip and had a fantastic stay at Cradle Mountain. 14 years later, we decided to bring our kids back to Tasmania for a longer trip and we were so elated when found out Cradle Mountain had 13 inches of snow 2 days before we were due to arrive there.

My kids were so happy to touch snow for the first time! Coming from a tropical country (tiny Singapore with a population of 4.8 million people only 1/7 the size of Kangaroo Island), the wilderness was “paradise” to us.

We have been to many parts of Australia and Tasmania is definitely on top of our favorites! Amazing place and lovely people! Everywhere we went, we felt welcomed!

Anna has posted several beautiful images of Cradle Mountain and Tasmania on the Cradle Mountain Tasmania Facebook page. Thanks very much to her for sharing this experience.
