We collect you early from 6.45am at either of the the 3 locations at Launceston Transit centre, Colonial Motor Inn or Launceston Backpackers, so we can make the most of the day at Cradle Mt. We aim to be there at 9am.
Firstly our guide at Cradle will take you on a 3 hour hiking exploration of the Dove Lake area in park. Heading straight into Dove Lake car park you walk, guided, firstly to glacier rock, a place where the remnants of last ice age are seen through scratches in the face of the rock. The walk traverses the shore line of Dove lake with amazing views to Cradle Mt. Is passes through sclerophyll forests where the trees dance under hanging rock cliffs. We finish the walk at the boat shed which shows some of the early settlers niche building styles of the area, our guide will tell you all about everything in more depth. We stop and have lunch at one of the many unique locations. Lunch today is generally a pre ordered fresh salad wrap with your choice of fillings and a cold or hot drink. Once lunch is out of the way our guides then get you ready for your canyoning adventure for the afternoon.
The Lost World Canyoning tour is all about getting up close and personal with a unique part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and gaining an introduction to the world of canyoning. After a 20-minute walk to the river, we put on wetsuits and the guides give you a safety talk. We then enter the Dove River and float and walk our way through this pristine wilderness.
There are jumps and other challenges, making for a super fun afternoon. All the challenges are optional on this tour. We give you all the gear you need and being able to swim is not essential.
At the end of the day, tired and weary from such an action packed day we head back to Launceston to arrive at around 7.30pm
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.
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.
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!
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.

A great opportunity to spend some quality time exploring the highlights of Huon Valley and Bruny Island. There is much to see and do, 3 days will not do it the justice it deserves, but it will give us an opportunity to get a good taste of the region. The Huon Valley has much to offer – just 30 minutes from Hobart it is a world away. We pop into visit the Wooden Boat Centre, explore a local cidery, visit the retail site of Margate Train and tour Tasmania’s largest landscaped native garden – at Inverawe gardens. A day will be dedicated to Bruny Island – we take a tour of the island with a local step on guide and explore the highlights as well as some of the lesser known spots also. The last day of the tour will see us make the most of our time in the south of the state and pop in to visit other exciting nearby attractions. This tour was requested! We expect it to book out quickly.
