Please note that the itinerary is subject to change without notice.
Our professional driver will collect you from your Cradle Mountain accommodation or the National Park Visitor Centre. We commence our fully guided tour into the National Park during which time our driver and guide will give an informative commentary covering the history, flora and fauna of the region.
On arrival at Dove Lake there will be chance to capture the spectacular and iconic views of Cradle Mountain. At times the Mountain may be shrouded in cloud, but this still offers the incredible scenery of Dove Lake and the historic Boat Shed. The time spent at Dove Lake allows for a short 20-minute walk and multiply photos opportunities.
We then 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.
We then enjoy a short 15 minute walk through a cool temperate rain forest and be amazed by story of the King Billy Pines in Weindorfers Forest. Our guides will highlight all the different tree and plant species and you may even see some of the local wildlife.
We leave the Waldheim area and travel to the Interpretive Centre and Rangers Station where you can view the many photos and interesting articles of the region.
Finally, we take a walk on the short Pencil Pine Falls loop track, walking amongst giant Myrtle and Pencil Pine trees en-route to the stunning 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.
