Any trip to the Cradle Mountain area is a worthwhile experience – a visit to The Wilder ness Galler y adds a special highlight. And as well as the superb photography in the gallery itself, there’s also a well-stocked gift shop selling a var iety of merchandise, from photographic prints to outdoor gear, from local honey to craft by Tasmanian artists. w ww.wilder nessgallery.com.au CHRIS BELL “The apparent and the abstract”: Nature Chris Bell is passionate naturalist and a writer.
