Experience the ‘turning of the fagus’, when a tree from the time of Gondwanaland turns Tasmania’s Cradle Valley gold and scarlet.

As I climb the steep track up and away from Dove Lake, I keep meeting descending pilgrims.
“How is it up there,” I ask them.
“There’s some colour,” “might be a little early,” “not as bright as other years,” they say, defeating me just a little.
