Cradle Mountain: Day Trip from Launceston with Lunch
- Pickup available
- Duration: 10 hours
Absolutely LOVED this tour. So much to see, and our driver Ben, was a wealth of information. We can highly recommend this tour and would definitely do it again. The Waldheim Chalet and park was the biggest suprise. The moss forest was breathtaking. We had the best time, even as it was a drizzling most of the day. The only unfortunate thing was the Cheese factory was closed (due to renovations) but Ben our driver took us to a Raspberry farm which was just as wonderful.
Pick up was on time, Ben our guide was amazing, very informative on the trip, the history and also offered suggestions on what to do for the remainder of our travels. Lunch was a sandwich from a bakery on the way. We completed the whole dove lake circuit walk. Most is pretty easy,at least 40% boardwalk, but some steep steps at the beginning and at the end. Absolutely stunning. Overall a great day! Would highly recommend this tour.
Good to have done it. There are a few angles though. First, it is 2.5 hours to get there from Launceston, so 5 hours transit all up. Second, the weather at Cradle Mountain is very finicky. For example, it was cold and wet for us, but no rain 40 minutes away at Sheffield. Our guide Ben was very good, and overall a good experience which was significantly down to his guidance.
Can’t recommend this highly enough . Geoff our guide was informative and knowledgeable and he catered to our every need . We learnt so much along the way and had a fantastic walk around Dove Lake . This is a trip I recommend for anyone
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the Cradle Mountain Day Tour and we recommend this tour to anyone when they are making plans of things yo do and places to see in Launceston, Tasmania
