Enjoy the very popular Night Spotting Tour as this is ideal chance to see Tasmania’s nocturnal creatures in their natural habitat during the early hours of the evening.
Wildlife is abundant and easy to get close to with professional guides to show you where to look.
A custom-made 4‑wheel drive coach will take you inside the Cradle Mt National Park to enjoy a short walk along the boardwalk where wombats, pademelons, wallabies, possums and quolls forage at night. We may even experience hearing or seeing a Tasmanian devil in the wild.
Please note that the itinerary is subject to change without notice.
Our professional guide will collect you from your Cradle Mountain accommodation.
We travel into the iconic Cradle Mountain National Park to Ronny creek to begin our exploration of the area, weather permitting we will leave the bus with our hand-held torches and spotlights and quietly and slowly walk into Mount Kate Hut area to view some animals that have popped out early for their night time feed. .
We stroll along the local area boardwalks of the Cradle Valley Walk and perhaps even the Overland Track where there is a good chance to view some wombats amongst other animals.
From Waldheim Chalet we will spotlight from the bus along the road and into the forest hoping to spot any elusive animals before returning to your local accommodation.
