There are many reasons people choose Cradle Mountain walks as their holiday of choice. It is a fun and educational holiday where you will experience once in a lifetime activities. You will set out on an adventure where you will have a challenging walk and get back to nature. You will enjoy Cradle Mountain accommodation in the huts along the trail that are comfortable as well as eco friendly. After a long day’s trek, you will welcome the hot showers, sumptuous food and relaxing atmosphere in which to rejuvenate for the coming day’s adventure. But one of the advantages is seeing all the sights you will experience while on the trail. You can choose from a four or a six day trek. Regardless of what you choose, you will see some spectacular sites.

The first three days of the trek are similar between both the four and six day trek. You will see some of the amazing natural formations that occurred due to glaciers carving out valleys and lakes in the mountain. On the first day you will journey to Waldheim in Cradle valley and get to experience temperate rainforests. Marion’s Lookout, Cradle Mountain and Dove Lake are sights you will see all before lunch. Plateau Creek and Waterfall Valley are among the sights you will see the second half of the first day’s journey before getting to your Cradle Mountain accommodation at Barn Bluff Hut.

Day two consists of Pine Forest Moor, Lake Will and Mt. Pelion West. Day three you will see Frog Flats by the Forth River, Lemonthyme Valley and Mt. Oakleigh. Day four changes slightly depending on which trek you choose, the four or six day journey. Some may see Pelion Plains, Lake Ayr, Wurragarra Creek, Mt. Pillinger, Lake Price, Arm River Valley, Mole Creek Karst National Park and the town of Deloraine. Others may spend the day at Pelion Gap taking in side trips throughout the area.

For those on the six day trek you will continue through days five and six, stopping at your Cradle Mountain accommodation at the end of each day. Kia Ora, Du Cane, Mersey River, Bass Strait, Falling Mountain and Windy Ridge huts are among day five’s sights. The final day you will experience Lake St. Clair, Cynthia Bay, Western Tiers, Northern Midlands and towns of Cressy and Longford.

During your travels to each of these areas you will experience open moors, shallow tarns, buttongrass, Pencil Pines, swimming holes, abandoned copper mines, amazing forests, waterfalls, trapping huts, gardens and amazing views. It is the perfect way to learn about the area first hand and take pictures to share with friends and family when you return. You will see an amazing array of plant life and natural geological formations. Plus you will see indigenous birds and wildlife throughout your journey also. When you choose Cradle Mountain accommodation, you will have an adventure that will be remembered for a lifetime.
