We will collect you from your Cradle Mountain accommodation or the Cradle Mountain National Park visitor information centre in our clean and tidy mini bus. Time will be confirmed at booking but generally please be ready around 15min prior to departure time.
We drive into the Cradle Mountain National Park and start our walks at the Dove Lake carpark as we head to Glacier rock. These rocks have left us remnants of the movement from a glacier during the last ice age. On the clearest of day to views from here are tremendous….
We then drive up to Waldheim chalet, the first accommodation place in Cradle Mountain National Park for a quick peak at Waldheim then onto Weindorfers forest walk, a cool temperate rainforest or ancient myrtle beech trees covered in moss from ground to top.
We leave the chalet and drive to the Cradle Mountain National Park interpretation centre where we join a few short walks firstly the Pencil Pine falls and Rainforest walk then onto the beautiful Enchanted walk which has special features for the kids followed by the beautiful rainforest of the King Billy walk. We walk the trails to various view points and points of interest where our guide will stop and discuss the plants, flowers and the various nomenclature of the area. We will see Pandani, Button grass, Boronia, Waratah and different species of pine trees amongst many other plants and trees.
Our final short walk is to Knyvet falls. These falls can be a gentle wash of water which photographs brilliantly or after heavy rains they can be a raging wall of water which sounds like thunder.
We farewell each other at the end of this walk and we will drop you back to your hotel or the Visitor centre.
