Detailed Itinerary

Please note that the itinerary is subject to change without notice.

  • Day 1: Cradle Mountain

    Departing Launceston and travel through the scenic Meander Valley Highway and follow the Great Western Tiers to visit the friendly rural town of Sheffield featuring more than 140 murals which depict the pioneering history and character of the Cradle Mountain region and it’s intriguing past.

    Travel up into the mountains through gorges, rain forest and button grass plains to reach the destination of Cradle Mountain, one of Tasmania’s most recognisable landmarks and one of Tasmania’s most visited attractions.

    Experience the unique flora, fauna and geographical features of the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain National Park. Enjoy a guided walking tour on the Dove Lake Circuit Boardwalk. This walk is undulating but the well-defined and man-made track makes it accessible for everyone. The track weaves it way through rainforest and past quartzite beaches. Along the way we will visit Glacier rock to see remnants of the last ice age. The walk is around 1 hour in duration with the option to walk the entire board walk which is an additional 1.5 hours if required. You will experience the amazing views across Dove Lake to the jagged dolerite peaks of Cradle Mt, wander through the ancient King Billy Pine Forest at Waldheim Chalet and enjoy a short rainforest walk to Pencil Falls.

    A light lunch is provided and a selection of a healthy spread of fresh rolls, wraps and local salad fillings and cheeses.

    Finally departing the World Heritage National Park make your way back to Launceston including a visit to Ashgrove Tasmanian Farm where you can taste and purchase many varieties of cheese and an abundance of other locally produced Tasmanian product.
