Cradle Mountain: Day Trip from Launceston with Lunch
- Pickup available
- Duration: 10 hours
This was an amazing trip. There were so many highlights. Our outstanding, kind, patient, amazing tour guide Jeff was extremely good and very flexible person. What an absolute saint. He was so organized and insightful. The scenery was beautiful, and It was a relieve to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment in Cradle Mountains. Honestly, I cannot think of a way this trip could have been better. We were so well cared for and it was an definitely active adventure. Overall, a top-notch experience that my boys and me will never forget. Thank you, Jeff and GetYourGuide Travelers.
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.
Our guide and driver Ben was amazing! So knowledgeable. I learned so much about the vegetation and rain forest. Ben’s so passionate about Cradle Coast and area - as he said, he could talk about it all day! Just beautiful area. Loved the hut we had lunch in. The veg relish was delicious! Sampling the cheese was excellent!
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
