  • Arrived today and immediately got on the bus to take the tour of Cradle Mountain. Stunning scenery with abundant wildlife everywhere. Echidnas, wombats, wallabies all over the place. If your children ...  more »
  • Beautiful park immersed in nature, opportunity to take walks of all kinds of difficulties and duration. Don't miss the ride around Lake Dove, which lasts a couple of hours and has a medium-low difficulty: the scenery is wonderful and you can easily meet kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and various species of birds, especially if the day is not too hot. Absolutely not to be missed.
