Cradle Mountain National Park is a World Heritage Area
renowned for its stunning beauty.  Cradle
Mountain itself rises 1545m above sea level and forms the back drop to Dove
Lake.  There are many walking options at
Cradle Mountain and with around 5 hours to spend in the National Park our guides
will help you make the most of this fantastic day with a series of great short
walks before trekking off around Dove Lake or climb to loftier peaks at
Marion’s Lookout for some amazing World Class views and photographs! 

En-route from Launceston to Cradle Mountain we enjoy a
short stop and a quick explore at the very quirky Sheffield.  A small town, with an amazing mountain
setting, and some even more amazing murals painted on the buildings of the
town.  With over 60 murals depicting the
history and natural beauty of the area, we think this is top spot to have look
around and grab a coffee before continuing onwards to the distant mountains.

Our aim at Cradle Mountain is to give you the best
walking experience we can fit into the day, based on your fitness, interests
and the weather conditions on the day. 
We leave our itinerary here open and flexible and in the hands of our
experienced guides to work with you, as a small group, for an unforgettable
Cradle Mountain experience.

The key walks we regularly use include:



Weindorfer’s Forest Walk & Waldheim Chalet

Pencil Pine Falls Walk

Enchanted Walk

Knyvet Falls Walk

Dove Lake Circuit (2 hours – easy)

Marion’s Lookout (3 hours – medium)



Time permitting on our return to Launceston we have a number of options for places
to stop these include the Ashgrove Cheese Factory, Chudleigh Honey Farm and
Seven Sheds Meadery & Brewery.

Join us for this fantastic and huge day out. 
Discover the magic of the rainforest, the beautiful
waterfalls & enchanted
forests of the park and make friends with the abundant, local
wombats.
