Get ready to be reinvigorated by Mother Nature’s vibes! Cradle Mountain is not to be missed whilst your ship is docked in Burnie.

Cradle Mountain offers some of world’s most famous natural beauty and is one of Australia’s most popular scenic tours.

Indulge in outdoor activities - discover rainforests, waterfalls, rivers, lakes and keep your eye out for our unique wildlife. There are a number of beautiful short walks available, including the Enchanted Walk, Dove Lake, Rainforest Walk, The Weindorfers Forest Walk. All walks range from easy to moderate level. Choose one to suit your level of comfort and fitness.

On the way back down the mountain (if time permits), we will pull into a beautiful winery on the banks of Lake Barrington or one nestled in the countryside of Sheffield (the town of murals) for something to eat or to simply sample the local cool climate wines.
