Day 2 - Cradle Mountain (B, L)

No need to check out this morning, as we will return to Launceston for a second night. Today we day trip to explore the scenic highlands landscape and the wondrous Cradle Mountain National Park. First up though is a stop at Sheffield - the famous township of murals. See the giant depiction of Gustav Weindorfer in his Cradle Mountain Chalet surrounded by local wildlife. There are dozens of artistic murals here to enjoy over a short tea/coffee break.  

After another scenic drive we reach the highlands area & Cradle Mountain. Spend the majority of today exploring this wondrous park and the many fantastic walking tracks. Take a short drive into Dove Lake for breathtaking views of Cradle Mountain. Next, we offer a fully guided selection of walks to suit the group and weather. Some options include Glacier Rock platform, the Boat Shed, Pencil Pine Waterfall walk, the Enchanted Walk & Weindorfers Forest walk. 

This will be a great day of exploration for everyone. Depending on conditions other walking options might be a section of the Cradle Valley Boardwalk from Snake Hill, or a stunning section of the famous Overland Track from Dove lake to Ronnie Creek. There are many great, short walks today, all of them offering a rare opportunity to experience this pristine wilderness. Your guide will choose the most appropriate selection to suit the group & weather. 

Next, visit the old “Waldheim Chalet” of pioneer Gustav Weindorfer, who’s efforts helped make Cradle Mountain world famous and bring public attention to this photographer's paradise.
