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!
INCLUSIONS and HIGHLIGHTS
McDermott’s Coaches are a shining example of the way Tasmania’s tourism industry should operate. They understand their product, their industry and their customers and consistently deliver the highest level of service.
When it comes to professionalism,... When it comes to professionalism, guest care and quality of vehicles, it would be hard to beat McDermott's anywhere in Australia. They were the official ground transporter for the 2018 Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, bringing guests from multiple locations to the site of the event on time and in comfort. For any conference organiser managing an event in Tasmania or abroad, make sure you consider McDermott's. Superb.
I just wanted to send an email to compliment your company for a wonderfultour and a great driver. He was an excellent driver his knowledge of Tasmaniaand every place we went to was outstanding. The way he treated the more elderly was lovely.He mixed well with everyone and his driving on the more difficult roads was exceptional. I would without a doubt recommend your company.
Your drivers, were absolutely phenomenal again.They were always more than accommodating and helped us out when the situation meant we had to be flexible and change our plans. We would love to have the same drivers again!

An exciting way to get to see a part of Northern Australia’s Top End. You, your friends and a group of like-minded explorers who wish to get out and about in a very special region. Take in the sights and history of Darwin before heading south to Jawoyn country and Nitmiluk National Park for a gorgeous cruise on the Katherine river. Leaving the NT we cross the WA border to the famous Kimberley region of the Top End to Lake Argyle and Kununurra the gateway of the area. We get to explore these great places with a sunset cruise and if time allows an option for you to fly over the huge Lake Argyle Diamond mine. At Fitzroy Crossing on our way to Broome we cruise on the croc infested Fitzroy River with some local rangers. Arriving in Broome, the pearl of the north, we explore this out post and all it has to offer and finish the day taking in the sunset on Cable beach
