Update for edition 6, 2015
Home | Return to Cradle Mountain guide book page
This page will be regularly updated several times each year. Most changes result from our own trips - very few bushwalkers ever write in and provide corrections. Only major changes that effect trip planning or navigation are shown here.

Page 115, 175. Lees Paddocks. The owners do not allow public camping on the paddocks. For permission to camp contact Judy Kilby 0439 334 663 or Grant Evans 0408 133 421
Page 126-127, Penguin-Cradle route change. 14.4km - At the junction 500m south of the Adit Creek crossing, keep left and follow the vehicle track south. Next junction continue south (on left) and descend steeply to enter the back of Wings Farm
Page 184-186, Cheyne Range. Grid references are AGD66.
Page 186, second paragraph, line 3, Grid reference is 188359 (not 359188)
Mersey Valley - the road was closed for more than a year in 2016 and this allowed the scrub to grow. Most of the tracks are now fairly scrubby  so expect some scrub and slower times.

A large fire has burnt out the some of the Great Pine Tier near the Great Lake. At this stage the fire map does not indicate any damage to the Walls and access tracks.
