Visiting Cradle Mountain is a must when you are in Tasmania. We were contacted by the company prior to the tour to confirm the pick up location and time. We received a reminder the day before. The pick up was smooth and on time. The day trip was a great experience, although you need to be quite fit for this tour. My son and I were able to complete the harder track but it was a challenge for us. We were very fortunate to have a great weather on the day. The trip to Cradle Mountain was smooth and the driver/ tour guide was very experience. He did the tracks with us, which would be comforting for newbies. The time given to us in Cradle Mountain was sufficient for us to complete all the 3 tracks. We would highly recommend this trip.

A nice trip and experience!
Our tour guide filled us in with valuable knowledge of Australian wildlife.
Wonderful scenery and wildlife was great, close to many plants and animals.
The Dove Lake circuit will be lots of glittery views to catch your eye, so you may take 3 hours or more.
Highly recommended.

We are happy because our guide Rod was so helpful to lead us up the mountain. The views from the higher planes were gorgeous. We also enjoyed the company of our cheerful team mates who inspired us to persevere on with the climb.

My visit to Cradle Mountain was very scenic and beautiful. Our tour guide from Tasmanian tours was very informative and gave us very clear directions and even provided us with extra coats and beanies. It was a beautiful sight to see the mountain as we could not get up to it only experienced mountaineers could navigate the rugged terrain. The Dove lake was serene and calm and very picturesque. I tool lots of pics and did a small walk due to health reasons. There were walks for two hours, three hours and even six hours around the lake.
It is always best to have a walking stick that trekkers use. especially for people of my age group. It can be very risky and one must be very careful and follow strict instructions from the guides. We had several toilet stops, we also visited Sheffield the town of murals and witnessed some of the artists painting as there was a competition on that weekend. We also visited the cheese factory and savoured the many kinds of cheese on the way back. The weather was great not too hot or too cold. I enjoyed my day.

GREAT TRIP. You get to spend a lot of time 3hrs at Cradle Mountain, more than enough time to trek up to Marion's Lookout and get a beautiful view of the park area. The sights are breathtaking. I managed to walk around a portion of Dove Lake too.

Dress in layers as it gets windier and chillier as you climb higher.
