Tasmania - Southern Reserve Walk  - 21 April - 5 May 2016

This was a 12 day walk in the southern section of Cradle Mountain - Lake St Clair National Park. The main purpose was to photograph fungi and fagus (native deciduous beech). I walked up from Cynthia Bay at Lake St Clair, to Narcissus at the north end of the lake, and then continued to Pine Valley. With a good weather forecast I headed up to the Labyrinth and camped there for three nights. I then headed back to Pine Valley and spent the next five nights in Pine Valley Hut. On the days I visited the Acropolis and explored Pine Valley for fungi. I also spent time photographing the very beautiful Cephissus Creek. The last three days were spent slowly walking back down to Cynthia Bay. I then spent a day walking on tracks near Cynthia Bay - again mainly photographing the fungi.
