The iconic Cradle Mountain National Park is yours to share with your family on this short & exciting walking holiday. Carrying just a day pack, explore the base of the Great Western Tiers on foot before a visit to the fascinating caves of the Mole Creek Karst National Park. It’s then on to the Cradle Mountain National Park high country where you’ll have a number of impressive walks to choose from, you can even tackle the summit of Cradle Mountain (weather permitting). Sharing the 360-degree panoramic views of Tasmania’s highest mountains and surrounding wilderness area from its summit with your children will inspire them to want to explore even more. Nearby in the Forth Valley, you can all climb to the summit of Mt Roland, from where you’ll be greeted with 360 degree views of Bass Strait, Cradle Mountain and the prominent Barn Bluff. This is a fantastic introduction to active travel for the whole family.
