First time to experience rain after the first few weeks in Australia. Very beatiful walks, the lake is really pretty and well worth the trip.

Thanks for joining our tour, Cradle Mountain is unique considering it is a short drive from Launceston but is so remote, often with its own weather conditions in the alpine environment. We are pleased you were able to see this corner of Australia, and enjoyed the walks and scenery available to you.

A very informative driver/tour guide provided us with a very enjoyable day. We saw the Mt through low clouds and light rain and wind which gave an alpine feel to the air. We saw many wombats, kangaroos and wonderful old trees. A good day had by all.

Cradle Mountain, although just an hour from the coast, can be described as moody with the ever changing climate, it could be clear sunny skies when you leave in the morning and, as you experienced, a variety of weather once you reach Dove Lake. It really adds to the character of the alpine area. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience.

What a great tour - certainly worth the day and all the twists and turns on the way to get there which would test your motion sickness if you are that way inclined. We were lucky in that the weather was great - the natural surroundings were just beautiful. Our guide Ben was

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review, Suzanne. Ben is a wonderful guide and it is hard to come up with a question he does not have an answer for, which is reflection of how knowledgeable and passionate he is about Tasmania and Cradle Mountain.
