About the tour

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 of either Glacier rock or the Boat shed the light will slowly come over the Mountain and it is truly an exceptional view. Each walk is around 20 minutes return from Dove Lake carpark

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.

We take the tracks out of the Waldheim area to the interpretive centre and ranger station where 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 interactive and interesting touring, it all concludes at your hotel ready to get into a scrumptious breakfast after building up an appetite.
