This is an experience aimed at all levels. I have done the more advanced course and it is exciting and exhilarating. The 3 hour course is more for the faint hearted and children yet still exciting. I did the 3 hour one with my kids and it was great to engage on a non-electronic adventure they loved. They are desperate... More

GREAT COMPANY! Well worth the money. We had booked in for the Dove Canyon experience - unfortunately the weather had that experience rained out - so instead they took us to Machinery Creek where we got to do a different canyoning experience which was heavy on the abseiling component. The company was super organised, professional, and most of all FUN.... More

Yesterday we completed the Dove Canyon tour and have not stopped talking about it since. This is one of the most awesome adventures of a lifetime !! Simply "Liking" this experience is not enough. Our family of 4 (2 adults 2 teens) LOVED it. One of the best things we have ever done and an excellent way to finish our... More

This place is just so amazing, and perhaps that's why Tourism Tasmania is not promoting it and try to keep it a secret! I say tell everyone, Cradle country is breathtaking beautiful! It recharges, rejuvenates and calm a city soul like mine in a way that, even if you don't like bush walking, you can't help but enjoy the serenity.... More

Did the Dove Canyon last December - although a first-timer I felt at ease and really enjoyed it. Both our friendly guides Tim and Nick were super attentive, experienced and entertaining too. One abseil into the canyon, and then lots of jumps, slides and a couple of little waterfalls. Loved seeing Cradle Mountain from a different perspective, down within the... More

Was a fantastic day from start to finish! Wasn't the warmest of days but the staff made sure everyone was as comfortable as possible. Each section is not only fun and adventures but also within a stunning canyon with beautiful scenery. Lunch provided was really good with a nice warm hot chocolate. Guides knew the course well and have lots... More

A thrilling experience enjoyed by my two sons aged 17 and 20, an old family friend who lives in Tasmania and my myself (both early fifties ) We joked it would be the young blokes v's the old blokes! There was a great combination of jumps, slides and an abseil into the canyon. Our two experienced guides not only made... More

Just did the 'Lost World Canyon' trip with Cradle Mountain Canyons. This is the easiest of the trips offered by this company. We loved it! We wanted to do one of the longer and more adventurous trips, but our son is 12 and will have to wait another 3 years before he can do these trips. We were worried that... More
