Our professional guide/s will collect you from your hotel. Sunrise tour time will be confirmed at time of booking. The tour duration is for 2 hours from pick up time
Once we have all guests on board we will head into the National Park, along the way our guides will give an interesting commentary about the park and a rundown of the tour proceedings. Warm drink of tea, coffee or soup and some light snacks will be offered on the tour.
Upon arriving at Dove Lake there will be chance to capture the great views of the lake and across it to Cradle Mountain, please remember that at times the Mountain will be shrouded in cloud but this still offers incredible scenery of the lake as the sunrises over the area from the east.
We take some short walks at Dove Lake to get that great vantage point for the sunrise photo. We will head off in the direction of either Glacier Rock or the Boat Shed. If time does allow we may even reach one of these points.
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 all this interactive and interesting touring, it all concludes at your hotel ready to get into a scrumptious breakfast after building up an appetite.

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!
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 Travel Club have joined with Destination Management Cook Islands, a locally owned and operated Cook Island travel department, to bring you the very best that 5 nights in the Cook Islands can offer. Landing in Rarotonga the main international gateway we are immediately immersed in the islands culture by hitting the local lagoons for viewing through the glass bottom boats, this is typical way of life for Cook Islanders, as their lifestyle and culture hinges on sea life. We explore further into the way of life and culture on day 2 with island touring and in the night we have some locally cooked fare, something that the locals enjoy doing is sharing their love of food with visitors. We take off for a scenic flight to Aitutaki, one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world and stay here for the day just being in awe of that blue colour. Days 4 and 5 is more touring to local places of special significance and culture.
