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 walk at the Ronny Creek carpark. From here we take the Overland track through some button grass plains past crater falls hidden amongst a forest of pandani and sassafras, to a boat shed adjacent to the Crater Lake. Crater Lake is not a real crater but was formed by ice movement in the last ice age.
Trekking to the eastern shore of Crater lake we start to move our gaze looking down at Crater lake, a good time to start taking some photos. We increase the incline of the tack now as we move to a steep descent to the top of Marion’s lookout where we can see some very special scenery and views amongst the alpine vegetation of the top of the plateau.
Trekking back down a steep section of track we come to the Wombat pools with its ancient pencil pines then onto Lake Lilla. Here we again open out into button grass plains. Here we would be expecting to see some animals roaming and eating the grasses, again another place to get those great shots of wild animals in their natural habitats…
Keeping to the track we come to Ronny Ck car park where we will be met by our transport back to Cradle Mountain visitor centre or to your Cradle Mountain accommodation.

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.
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!
"The Qantas Australian Tourism Awards is a once in a lifetime chance to showcase the very best of a region. Showing a warm welcome together with the professional and punctual movement of over 800 guests for dinner was a critical start and end to the event. McDermotts were just a pleasure to deal with and the quality and condition of their coaches is superb. They assisted with clarity on the timelines to pick up from several hotels and deliver all guests promptly. As the event director, I appreciated not only the fact they were experienced and simply took care of the planning of the pickups, but that their drivers delivered to the very highest standard that was remarked upon by guests. I would never hesitate to recommend them "
This is an incredible once in a lifetime experience to holiday in Canada, including the Rocky Mountaineer rail journey, and board the world’s most sought-after cruise - the Alaska Inside Passage. We start with exploring Banff and Jasper from the comfort of the coach, the surface of a lake and the summit of the mountains! We hop on-board the renowned Rocky Mountaineer Train journey for 2 days through the heart of British Columbian Rockies, viewing some of the most stunning scenery on the planet before arriving at Vancouver. In Vancouver you will get to explore the city, its culture, cuisine and meet the loveliest people in this contemporary city. If you aren’t done yet after all these experiences, then you get to join the ‘Celebrity Eclipse’ cruise for the next 7 nights. The cruise hugs the west Canadian coast filtering through fiords and viewing the huge Hubbard glacier and onto the Alaskan coast. You get the opportunity to go ashore in far flung towns of Juneau and Ketchikan before disembarking in Whistler and slowly making hesitant routes to Vancouver airport.
