After all the fundraising and preparation, the wait is finally over! You will make your way to your Australian gateway airport for your flights to Launceston. Your guides will be collecting the group from Launceston airport at approx 11am. From there you will driven to nearby Deloraine where your guides will present a general overview of the trip and ensure you have the correct clothing and distribute any hire gear that has been requested. You will then be taken to Alum Cliffs for a short gentle walk near the base of the magnificent Great Western Tiers, the mountain range which presides over the central north of Tasmania. Afterwards we will journey further north to visit the incredible caves of the Mole Creek Karst National Park. Then your guides will take you deep into the Mersey Valley where they will provide a delicious lunch at the beautiful Creses Cave Reserve on the Mersey River. From here we will head up into the high country to Cradle Mountain National Park. If time permits we will have the opportunity to take in some of the shorter walks in the stunning World Heritage Area before retiring to our accommodation for the evening at Waldheim Cabins nestled on the rainforests edge within the National Park.
