KIDS TRAVEL FOR FREE (up to 15yrs accompanied by an adult)
Our professional guide/s will collect you from your hotel or the Cradle Mountain National Park Visitor Centre. Once all guests are on board, we drive into the National Park during which time our guides will give an interesting commentary about the Park and an explanation of the tour. After a 20 minute journey we arrive at Dove Lake where there will be chance to capture the great views of the lake and across to Cradle Mountain, at times the Mountain will be shrouded in cloud but this still offers the incredible scenery of the lake.
After the awe of viewing the area we take a short drive to Waldheim Chalet, the first accommodation in the area and home to Gustav and Kate Weindorfer. The original chalet was built by them in 1912 but what stands today is a full replica built in the 1970’s by similar techniques using local King Billy pine.
After we take a tour through the chalet we are led through the ancient King Billy Pine Weindorfers Forest, a short walk of 15 minute through cool temperate rainforest. Our guides will highlight all the different tree and plant species and you may even see some of the local animals. On the return to the bus we have samples of the different unique timbers that are used by specialist timber workers for you to feel and touch.
We leave the Waldheim area and travel to the Interpretive Centre and Rangers Station where you can view the many photos and read interesting articles of the region.
From here we proceed out to the Pencil Pine Falls loop track, walking amongst giant Myrtle and Pencil Pine trees en-route to Pencil Pine Falls.
At the conclusion of this interactive and interesting tour we return to your hotel or other designated drop off drop off point.
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.
"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 "
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.
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!
