Experience ancient rainforests, alpine heaths, glacial lakes, rugged mountains and some of Tasmania's iconic wildlife. With around 5 hours of time 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.

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. Our guides will carefully assist to ensure everyone has an opportunity to enjoy short, easy or longer walks that best suit them and the day ahead. Choose from the gentle and iconic Dove Lake Circuit or climb to loftier peaks to view the vastness of the surrounding World Heritage Area from Marion's Lookout. 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.

Cradle Mountain is the backdrop for a truly memorable and not to be missed Tasmanian experience.

As we return to Hobart we often have time to stop and sample some local boutique products in the surrounding area. We have the opportunity if time allows to sample some local Ales at the Seven Sheds Brewery or sample some of the award winning Ashgrove Cheeses.
