Day 1 Launceston
Our tour starts as we travel south west from Launceston through green pastures, skirting the mountains of the Great Western Tiers towards Cradle Mountain National Park. We pass by quaint and historical towns of Carrick, Hagley and Westbury and the scenic town of Deloraine before stopping at Sheffield - the town of murals. Here you can see the many intricate and life-like murals that adorn the town's buildings. As we traverse through dense forest and mountainous terrain look out for wombats, potaroos and wallabies that inhabit Cradle Mountain National Park. Visit the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre for an insight and appreciation of the area. Perhaps take a short stroll along the Enchanted
Forest Walk viewing pencil pines, lush forest and a spectacular waterfall. There is opportunity to take a short stroll around Dove Lake as you take in views of the powerful and majestic Cradle Mountain (weather permitting). Maybe visit Waldheim Chalet (forest home) of Gustav Weindorfers before leaving the park to visit Ashgrove Cheese Farm for some famous Tasmanian cheese. Learn how the cheese is made and sample the varieties made on the premises before heading back to Launceston.
