Mount Field National Park, Tasmania
About 11am this morning the Westpac Rescue Helicopter was activated to evacuate 9 adults and one child from Lake Dobson at Mt Field. The people had been stranded at Lake Dobson since Sunday due to the large amounts of snow that have fallen in the last few days.
The people were successfully evacuated about 1pm and conveyed to the Visitors Centre at Mt Field National Park.
All persons were in good condition and spirits.
Footage of the mission is available from Susan Stanley at Rotorlift.
