What you can expect

Spend a full day awakening your senses through the majesty of Cradle Mountain National Park on this guided tour from Launceston. Travel deep into the Tasmanian forest and explore the wildlife, waterfalls and glacial lakes soaring above the sparkling Dove Lake plateau.

Begin your day with a scenic drive along the green pastures of Launceston, then pass the picturesque villages of Carrick, Hagley, Westbury and Deloraine. Spot the collection of small mountain bluffs known as the Great Western Tiers just before you reach Sheffield. Watch for the multitude of murals depicting the area’s history and scenery.

Continue your journey through mountainous terrain and dense forest as you reach the Cradle Mountain National Park. Visit the visitor centre for an appreciation of the park and spot some wombats, potoroos and wallabies along the way. Stroll along the Enchanted Forest Walk and marvel at the lush green forest and the gorgeous Pencil Pine Falls. While here, take in the stunning view of the park reigning over picturesque Dove Lake.

Walk around and enjoy the lake and its surroundings before travelling to Waldheim Chalet—a replica of the park founder’s home that served as a guest chalet until 1974. Conclude your trip with a stop at Ashgrove Farm. Learn how cheese is made and sample several Tasmanian varieties produced on the premises, including their award-winning cloth-matured cheddar.
