Our professional guide/s will collect you from your hotel or the Cradle Mountain National Park Visitor Centre. Once all guests are on board, we drive into the National Park during which time our guides will give an interesting commentary about the Park and an explanation of the tour. After a 20 minute journey we arrive at Dove Lake where there will be chance to capture the great views of the lake and across to Cradle Mountain, at times the Mountain will be shrouded in cloud but this still offers the incredible scenery of the lake.
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.
After we take a tour through the chalet we are led through the ancient King Billy Pine Weindorfers Forest, a short walk of 15 minute through cool temperate rainforest. Our guides will highlight all the different tree and plant species and you may even see some of the local animals. On the return to the bus we have samples of the different unique timbers that are used by specialist timber workers for you to feel and touch.
We leave the Waldheim area and travel to the Interpretive Centre and Rangers Station where you can view the many photos and read interesting articles of the region.
From here we proceed out to the Pencil Pine Falls loop track, walking amongst giant Myrtle and Pencil Pine trees en-route to Pencil Pine Falls.
At the conclusion of this interactive and interesting tour we return to your hotel or other designated drop off drop off point.
An exciting way to get to see a part of Northern Australia’s Top End. You, your friends and a group of like-minded explorers who wish to get out and about in a very special region. Take in the sights and history of Darwin before heading south to Jawoyn country and Nitmiluk National Park for a gorgeous cruise on the Katherine river. Leaving the NT we cross the WA border to the famous Kimberley region of the Top End to Lake Argyle and Kununurra the gateway of the area. We get to explore these great places with a sunset cruise and if time allows an option for you to fly over the huge Lake Argyle Diamond mine. At Fitzroy Crossing on our way to Broome we cruise on the croc infested Fitzroy River with some local rangers. Arriving in Broome, the pearl of the north, we explore this out post and all it has to offer and finish the day taking in the sunset on Cable beach
