Cradle Mountain – Free guide and day walk map

We have been thinking about creating a free resource for visitors to Cradle Mountain (and Tasmania) for some time. There is a great Parks Tasmania website plus many others that focus on accommodation at Cradle Mountain. We saw a “hole” in the market which combines lots of information about Cradle (and animals, walks, activities) with accommodation reviews etc.

To encourage visitors to the site we have created two free offerings, a Cradle Mountain guide and day walk map.

Free Travel eBooks (we’re in one…..)

Trip base travel eBook

Just a quicky to let you know we had a couple of articles featured in a Tripbase “inspirational” travel secrets eBook.

Our three articles are in the Destination book. They highlight places we love to visit.

What you ask? A set of free travel eBooks?

This eBook series is the result of a unique collaborative project, the first of its kind to take place on the Internet.

Starting with just one blog post back in November 2009, the Travel Secrets project spread quickly with 200 amazing travel bloggers revealing their most closely guarded travel secrets.

The secrets were too good not to share! So we’ve compiled all 500 of them into a series of inspirational travel eBooks, available for free download right now!

Best Travel Pack? – We splash the cash on One Planet

One Planet Wheelie Travel pack train

What is the best travel pack?
What features are important when deciding on which one to spend your hard earned dollars on?
Is there a good compromise between a suitcase and a backpack?

Why the need for a travel pack?

We plan to travel a bit in the next few years – e.g. Cambodia in late August for three weeks

The way we plan to travel i.e. backpacking, lends itself to a rucksack rather than a suitcase

Suitcases are not easy to drag around and having your hands free is a bonus.

We might want to do some short (2-3 day walks) and are willing to compromise on pack weight and harness quality.
