A 21-year-old Victorian man sheltered in a cave in freezing temperatures overnight in the Thousands Lakes area of Tasmania's Central Highlands. Lawrence was reported missing on Monday 7th August at 7.00pm after walking ahead of his group. He was found at around 10 am the next morning attempting to walk back to safety, fortunately, he managed to keep his body temperature high enough overnight to survive the brutally cold weather of Tasmanian Winter by seeking shelter in a cave.
Thousand Lakes Lodge are happy and relieved that Lawrence was found safe and well! Such great work by all emergency staff, and were glad to be of assistance and give them all a warm place to do their work.
