Enjoy a 7 hour day trip to Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair National Park, while your ship is in Devonport.

Travelling through the highlands of Tasmania, you may have time to visit Sheffield to see the town's world-famous murals and Railton to see the iconic topiary, with a brief stop to view the Cethana Dam from a high vantage point.

Travelling in a small group with no more than 14 participants, will allow for a personalized experience with your guide.

Your guide will meet you at the Devonport Port pickup point for a leisurely drive to the Tasmanian Wilderness Region, an area covering almost 20% of Tasmania, where Lake St. Clair National Park is situated, calling in at several view sites along the way. The length of this tour is entirely dependent on the departure time of your ship and the time that passengers must be back at the pick-up point to meet the shuttle buses.

On the drive through the National Park to Dove Lake, a typical example of a glacial lake, you will be able to view and experience the majestic Cradle Mountain and catch glimpses of the native wildlife, which is abundant in this area. Visit the Waldheim Chalet, the forest home of Austria-born Gustav Weindorfer, who pioneered the Cradle Mountain region in the early 1900s. Here you can learn about the history of the region from the video being constantly screened in the building and the many signs posted around the walls, and see the cute little creatures of Australia, including wombats, potoroos and wallabies and many bird species.

Depending on your ship's departure time, the group will head for Sheffield and Railton, stopping off at the view site to take in the magnificence of the Cethana Dam. The Cethana Dam is a 110m high concrete face rockfill dam on the Forth River.  The purpose of the dam is to divert the combined flow of the Forth, Mersey and Wilmot Rivers to the underground Cethana Power Station for the production of electricity. The dam, spillway and power station were completed in 1971.

In Sheffield you can view the many murals painted on the walls throughout the town that depict the area's rich history and natural scenery. This would be a suitable place to stop for lunch (at own expense).

The first mural was painted in Sheffield in December 1986. Since then, over 60 murals depicting the area's rich history and beautiful natural scenery have been painted on walls throughout the town and buildings along the roadside.

Then on to Railton (time permitting), to discover the magic of topiary in the "Town of Topiary". There are many topiaries underway in various stages of growth. In many instances frames are in place to give a guide on how the topiary will appear once the plants are fully grown. Walking guides to the topiaries in the town can be picked up at shops in the main street. You can enjoy walking around the town and watch it grow each visit.
