Description

Cradle Mountain National Park is an area of iconic scenery with a wide variety of walking trails to choose from in this stunning World Heritage listed area. With around 5 hours to spend in the National Park we leave our walking itinerary flexible to suit our guests and the weather conditions on the day.

After departing Launceston we enjoy a short stop in Sheffield – The Town of Murals. Sheffield is a small and quirky village where the history of the Cradle Mountain region is depicted in artworks across the buildings throughout the town, this includes the opportunity to see the famous Eason’s Mural.

We continue our journey into the mountains and arrive at Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake with around 5 hours of possible walking time before us. We begin with a series of short walks to Rainforest City and Pencil Pine Falls. From here we can choose from the gentle and iconic Dove Lake Circuit an easy 2 hour walk with amazing mountain views. For the more active, we offer the chance to climb to the loftier heights of Marion’s Lookout. This walk is well rewarded with amazing 360 degree views of the surrounding World Heritage wilderness area.

Enjoy lunch by a quiet stream, watch the famous and friendly Cradle wombats in their natural habitat, or enjoy the many photographic opportunities that abound. Learn some of the local history as we visit Weindorfer’s Chalet and see the ancient King Billy Pines on Weindorfer’s Forest Walk.
Cradle Mountain is the backdrop for a truly memorable and not to be missed Tasmanian experience.
On our return to Launceston, we stop and sample some local tasty products at the award-winning Ashgrove Cheese Factory.

We return to Launceston around 6.30pm after a huge yet unforgettable Cradle Mountain day.

Our driver was very pleasant and provided us with interesting information along the way. The groups are small (14 in our case) and this provides a more intimate experience. There are several stops on the way to, and the way from Cradle Mountain and this provides good breaks in the drive. Cradle Mountain itself was great and definitely worth the trip. The last stop on the way back at the dairy farm for ice cream after a warm hike was very appreciated.

Cradle Mountain is beautiful. Unfortunately, rain was pouring down the entire day. In spite of that, I experienced a wonderful hike around Dove Lake and got totally soaked. Graeme is an excellent tour guide, giving us many facts along the way and giving us special care after being soaked. Would highly recommend a speaker system in the bus, though, since it was difficult hearing the guide, at times, without it.
