Tours exploring the untouched and carefully preserved Tasmanian Wilderness are a must for anyone visiting Tasmania. Our tour guide and bus driver Headley was on time and provided terrific commentary. On site, our guide Megan was informative and sympathetic to the abilities of the group by modifying and pacing the walking tours for us.
It is a long day tour, but the scenery is quite spectacular! A must see for the nature enthusiast.
Absolutely fabulous! Our guide was so wonderful and knowledgeable. Cradle mountain and Dove Lake are spectacular. Wish I could have stayed there longer. Will definitely do it again.
A fantastic experience. Bus arrived on schedule. Imogen, our guide for the day gave a commentary which was informative and interesting on a range of topics- places, history, landmarks etc. We stopped at Sheffield briefly, before making the drive to Cradle Mountain. Imogen had everything organised for us which was great. She kept a steady pace for us to walk around Dove Lake, stopping along the way to explain certain features, and giving us time to take photos. Scenery was amazing, plenty of photo opportunities. It was cool and a rain jacket was handy for the showers that occurred. Good walking shoes are a must. Afterwards, we had lunch - wraps/sandwiches, drink in a hut, followed by a visit to Waldheim house. We stopped at Ashgrove Cheese before heading back to Launceston. Overall, the experience exceeded expectations - wealth of information gained by being with an excellent guide and only a small group of about 9, access to the park and facilities, for a first time visit to the area the day was very enjoyable.
A must do tour. Our guide Headley did an amazing job and my son and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip!
Perfect weather for a clear view of Cradle mountain. The coach driver's commentary was interesting and informative. It's an excellent way to see the countryside and we stopped at a couple of the towns. A most enjoyable day trip.
We were lucky in having a perfect spring day which did help. The McDermott's coach driver/guide was most friendly, helpful and full of added info all the way there and back for that matter. He was a key ingredient to making the days tour informative, educational and therefore more enjoyable with meaning and purpose to the days outing. All it did was whets one appetite to go back for a longer time and go trekking in the Mt. Cradle National Park.
Our Tour to Cradle Mountain was surely Memorable, with Hedley our Tour guide and bus driver a full comprehensive informative tour from hotel pick up to drop off. We got to meet some local Wombats, which is a first for us, in there own natural environment, friendly enough for a pat. The weather was of cause very cold and windy, just what we expected, with a beautiful dusting of snow on the Mountains. Loved our day and will be back some day for sure. The stop to the Cheese Factory on the way back to Launceston is a great compliment to the Tour as the Cheese is Delicious and so glad we bought some home. Thanks again for a Great Day out!
We experienced Cradle Mountain at its finest. We were told it rains 240+ days there but it was sunny and bright during our trip. Paul our Guide had an encyclopedic knowledge which he shared with us. Strongly recommend the tour.
It was amazing to get to visit Cradle Mountain. And the weather was very kind to us the day we went, as it has been raining and windy. I would love to go back and do some trekking and take in the beautiful surrounding again. Big thank you to our guide Headley, you made my Launceston trip complete.
Amazing day tour. Cradle Mountain lived up to its reputation. It even snowed on us for a few minutes. So excited over that. We had only a few on the bus and our tour guide knew his stuff too.
very beautiful place, something must do in Launceston. we had a great day.
I had a wonderful time with this trip! Our driver and tour guide, Lain not sure how to spell his name, was wonderful! You need to take this trip!
The trip was amazing - loved every minute of it! Lane not sure how to spell his name was fantastic - he is very knowledgeable and gave a fascinating commentary as we drove along! In fact his commentary made the trip for me - that plus the scenery! He was also able to get a 4WD vehicle so we could get to Dove Lake which was great otherwise we would have missed that spectacular experience.....snow everywhere.....wombats munching away and little wallabies sheltering under the trees - it was a treat from start to finish!......then to cap it all off we stopped at the Lodge for a hot chocolate by the log fire.......oh sigh.....bliss! I'd recommend this trip to anyone as a must do must see experience! Thank You!
Tour was Monday 27 April and I was the only tourist on the trip. Headley the driver/guide was excellent, with a wide range of interesting information to impart. The weather was super so the views to the peaks was fabulous. All in all, a great day out.
Tour Guide was fantastic. Took us to some amazing places. Loved this tour. Long day but well worth the trip. Loved Sheffield too.
Great day spent, our guide/driver Leigh was very knowledgeble and shared a lot of information about Launceston and all the places we drove past all the way to the National Park and back. Cradle mountain is a must-go, beautiful landscape, Dove lake and a boat shed on the other side. On the way back, we stopover at Ashgrove Cheese Farm, great tasting. Definite must-taste cheeses (at least for me) are the black pepper, wasabi and marinated feta. :)
Excellent tour made even better by the minibus driver, Stan, who added a 'wealth of knowledge' to a very full day to Cradle Mountain. He was obviously very proud of his island and conveyed that love with a very informative chat all the way from Launceston to the National Park! We stopped along the way at Railton (town of wall topiary) and coffee and cake at Sheffield (town of wall murals) before heading into the spectacular scenery of Cradle Mountain. We had plenty of time at Dove Lake for lunch and a walk at the water's edge. It's a tour I won't forget in a hurry, absolutely wonderful! A visit to Waldheim, home of Gustav Weindorfer, pioneer and acknowledged founder of the park was 'a must', and we all felt priviledged to share this national treasure. I could have stayed longer but alas, it was soon time to leave. We still managed to stop-off on the way back to a cheese farm/shop at Elizabeth Town to sample the goodies of Ashgrove Diary. A memorable tour with lots of extras thrown in for good measure, highly recommended!
We had a great day. Our driver was very knowledgeable and you wouldn't want to be doing the driving on the winding road into the park. We had plenty of time to stretch the legs at Dove Lake ( which was quite beautiful). The Cheese Shop was a nice break on the way home.
A great day touring. Cradle Mountain was fabulous so too the scenery on the way. The coach driver was very familiar with the area and was very obliging and informative. Definitely a must see area!!!!!
Really nice place to go, I will visit this place again if I can.
Amazing day. Tour bus driver friendly and informative. Bus comfortable but little cramped.
A wonderful smorgasbord of good information and beautiful sights! Leigh is a brilliant and entertaining guide.
Highly recommended - very well organised, beautiful place - a must go.
