Our professional guide will collect you from your Cradle Mountain accommodation. Tour times are 8.30pm till 10.30pm from 1 October till 30 march and 5.30pm till 7.30pm from 1 April till 30 September.
We travel straight into the iconic Cradle Mountain National Park to Ronny creek to begin our exploration of the area, weather permitting we will leave the bus with our hand held torches and spot lights and quietly and slowly walk into Mount Kate hut area hoping to view some animals that have popped out early for their night time feed. .
We hit the local area boardwalks of the Cradle Valley Walk and perhaps even the Overland Track where there is a good chance to view some wombats amongst other animals.
We leave the excitement of the animal viewing at Ronny Creek and we travel to Waldheim Chalet.
From Waldheim Chalet we will spotlight from the mini bus along the road and into the forest hoping to spot any elusive animals. Don’t forget to look up in the trees too!
