This is an active day tour to one of Tasmania’s most well-known locations. To get the best experience from this tour you really cannot appreciate it fully without walking. As this is a guided tour your guide will select the best walk or walks, that in his/her experience, are the best option, taking into consideration the nature of the group and the prevailing weather conditions on the day. Once, we arrive at Dove Lake, easy access to food and drink is not available. As we want you to maximise your time in this area we will provide you with a suitable lunch and drink to carry with you which gives you the flexibility to eat when you get hungry. What could be a better place to eat your lunch with your family or new found friends than a picnic on the tranquil shores of Dove Lake or for more energetic the magnificent mountain vista from Marions Lookout on a perfect sunny Cradle Mountain Day.
