Cradle Mountain in a day from Hobart - 1 Day

Come back here TO BOOK !

The only Cradle Mountain day tour departing from Hobart. On arrival, you’ll have 4.5 hours to explore this world-renowned landmark and be reinvigorated by mother nature’s vibes in the amazing ancient forests of this world heritage wilderness site.

Recognised worldwide for its sheer beauty, Cradle Mountain is not to be missed while visiting Tasmania. Once thought to be impossible, but due to high demand, here it is: Hobart to Cradle Mountain and back in a day!

Join us on this 14 hour day tour and enjoy the scenic beauty as we make our way north from Hobart. The 4 hour drive each way is broken into 2 x 2 hour intervals to stretch the legs, grab a coffee and something to eat (at own cost).

Upon arrival at the Information Centre on the doorstep of Cradle Mountain, we will stock up on fluids and make our way to the shores of Dove Lake where you will have 2 hours to wander around the Dove Lake circuit or choose one of the many other large or small walks.

Once Dove Lake has been explored and you’ve captured that prized Instagram photo, it’s time to move on to the Enchanted forest and King Billy Pine walks. These two exceptionally beautiful and ancient walks will have you gazing through the forest with amorous delight as you breathe in the crisp, pristine air from under the canopy of 4000 year old trees. Native wildlife is abundant in this area, so keep your eyes peeled and you may see the elusive Tasmanian Devil, wombats, Spotted Quolls, wallabies and more!

After 4.5 hours exploring it is time to make the mission back South.
