The Road to Cradle

One of the roads to Cradle Mountain from Launceston or Devonport is through Sheffield - the town of Murals.  The area surrounding the town is very fertile farmland.  For local TV viewers the advertisement for a national vegetable producer with children dressed as vegetables was filmed here.   A stroll through the streets takes you back in time with pioneer theme murals painted on the beautiful old buildings throughout the town.

Mt Roland above dominates the skyline to the south west of Sheffield.  Just a few kilometres along the Cradle Mountain road.

 

An old barn (since partially collapsed) a few kilometres further along the "Road to Cradle" near Gowrie Park.  Another half an hour or so takes us through the Cethana Gorge to Moina and the turn off to Cradle.  The Mt Roland walks commence at Gowrie Park - we will return here.

 

 

From Sheffield, there are two roads leading to Cradle.  One passes beneath Mount Roland - turn off in Sheffield on the eastern side of the town centre.  The other is through Staverton and a place called "No Where Else".  Turn off just west of the town boundary.  Nearby "Devils Gate Dam" is a spectacular sight when spilling.  There is one of the world's largest maze complexes at Staverton - at the turnoff to Lake Barrington.  Great for children young and old!
