1. Re: Driving from Stanley to Cradle Mountain

Head out to the highway from Stanley, then head east to Somerset (just short of Burnie). Head south down the Murchison Highway until you get to the big signpost pointing to Cradle Mountain.

The places to stay there are Cradle Mountain Lodge, Cradle Mountain Hotel, Highlanders Cottages, Cradle Wilderness Village or Discovery Holiday Park (more or less in descending budget order).

The road to Bothwell goes through Mole Creek, Chudeligh, Deloraine and Miena. Lots to see along the way: Mole Creek Caves, Trowunna Wildlife Park, a couple of honey shops, 41South Salmon Farm, The Great Lake.

The old golf course is at Bothwell and there's really nowhere else within cooee. We have stayed in a B&B there but I think it's now closed, so I can't recommend anything personally. However, Ratho (which is where the golf course is) operates a B&B now.

There is 18km of gravel road on the Lake Highway north of Miena on the road to Bothwell. Some hire companies allow it. Read the Ts&Cs. It's OK if they say "Gazetted" roads.
