Enjoy an action packed day of canyoning in Tasmania's wilderness world heritage area of Cradle Mountain. With no experience required, this full day tour is for all travelers looking for an adventurous and challenging day out. Experience abseiling into the canyon, freestyle falls and jumps of seven yards into the deep pool below. Continue through the canyon, encountering five more waterfalls before visiting the Laundry Shoot a ten meter high natural waterslide that spits canyoners out from a cave into a big open pool.

Your tour begins at the Cradle Mountain Canyons office early morning where you will be kitted out with wetsuits and other gear before traveling a short distance by bus to your first stop.

Begin your day with a 45-minute walk into the canyon passing through spectacular button grass plains, ancient rain forests while taking in incredible views of Cradle Mountain.

After a thorough safety talk from an experienced and qualified guide,abseil into the canyon where you can spend approximately three hours in the canyon, jumping and sliding off waterfalls, walking and floating through the calm stretches in between. In all, there are six waterfalls to get down. The highest jump is about seven meters. As there is no way for you to walk around each waterfall, you will need to abseil or jump down each waterfall.

At the end of the tour there is an approximately one hour walk out of the canyon. The first twenty minutes of this is up a steep hill in a wetsuit to get back to where dry clothes have been left (definitely the hardest part of the day physically). Groups then drive back to the office where the tour began and have the option to purchase photos of the tour.

End your day after a short bus trip back to Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre

Float and walk through a beautiful section of river and see the world from the point of view of a platypus. The Lost World Canyon offers a truly unique way to experience Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area. This tour is all about getting up close and personal with nature. Available to participants aged eight and up, it is not aimed at the adrenaline junkie, but some jump rocks up to three metres high and other challenges spice things up. Some of the highlights include seeing 1000-year old pencil pine trees and hearing the story of James ‘Philosopher’ Smith – the legendary first canyoner at Cradle Mountain.

Meet your group and guide at either 8.30am or 1.30pm. After getting kitted out, pile into the Canyon Mobile and drive approximately 15-minutes to Snake Hill. From here it is an easy 20-minute walk along boardwalk to the river, with stunning views of Cradle Mountain gained along the way.

After a thorough safety talk, enter the river and begin floating and walking your way down-stream. Spend approximately one hour in the water. For the adventurous there are jumps from rocks up to three metres into the water and other challenges to spice things up. In low water conditions, this might include taking a deep breath and swimming under a bolder. In higher water levels it will involve swimming down rapids and shoots. If you don't want to do the jumps, that's fine too.

The guides on the tour will tell you lots of interesting facts about the area you are in and tell you some stories about some of the interesting characters who have passed this way before.  

Having left the river, get changed back into your dry clothes and walk out the same way we came in. This is probably the hardest part of the tour as it is up hill and your wetsuit is heavier on the way out, because it is wet!

Our professional guide/s will collect you from your hotel. Sunrise tour time will be confirmed at time of booking. The tour duration is for 2 hours from pick up time

Once we have all guests on board we will head into the National Park, along the way our guides will give an interesting commentary about the park and a rundown of the tour proceedings. Warm drink of tea, coffee or soup and some light snacks will be offered on the tour.

Upon arriving at Dove Lake there will be chance to capture the great views of the lake and across it to Cradle Mountain, please remember that at times the Mountain will be shrouded in cloud but this still offers incredible scenery of the lake as the sunrises over the area from the east.

As we walk around to various vantage points the light will slowly come over the Mountain and it is truly an exceptional view.

We take a short 20min return walk to Glacier rock to see the remnants of the last ice age. This interesting rock is where you can see indents form glacial movement, a glacier that caused the carving out of Dove Lake itself.

After the awe of viewing the area we take a short drive to Waldheim chalet, the first accommodation in the area and home to Gustav and Kate Weindorfer. The original chalet was built by them in 1912 but what stands today is a full replica built in the 1970’s by similar techniques using local King Billy pine.

Once we have had a look through the chalet we pop out the ‘back’ and onto Weindorfers forest walk, a short walk of 30min through cool climate rainforest, our guides will let you know about all the different trees and plants and if you’re lucky enough you can see some of the animals that may pop their heads up to say hello. Back in the bus we have samples of the different unique timbers that are used for building and timber workers for you to feel and touch.

We take the tracks out of the Waldheim area to the interpretive centre and ranger station where you can view the many photos and read interesting articles of the region.

From the interpretive centre we head out onto the Pencil Pine falls loop track. Walking amongst giant Myrtle and Pencil Pine trees en-route to Pencil Pine falls.

After all this this interactive and interesting touring, it all concludes at your hotel ready to get into a scrumptious breakfast after building up an appetite.
