Best day in Tasmania by far

Did the dove tour with my partner today, absolutely fantastic and unique view of cradle. Definitely physically demanding and not for the faint hearted, we had a fantastic day!

A little disappointing The pricing for access to the National Park Is a little costly and bus shuttle is encouraged at a price! There seems to be a bigger price to pay for a World Heritage location. But there are other outstanding similar locations nearby i.e Mt.Roland

Fantastic experience, will come back again! I came with my teenage daughter and we both really enjoyed it together. The location is perfect and this is the best way to see this beautiful canyon. Need to be fairly fit and OK with heights.

Great day in Dove Canyon! Our guides (Ryan and Bec) made the day even more enjoyable. From the start when you are issued your gear they make the day fun while letting you know what's about to happen. For those who might be a little nervous, don't worry, they keep you calm (and safe!). The location and environment speaks for... More

Couldn't recommend this tour (to reasonably fit people) enough!!! So well organised, confident and happy guides and a truly stunning location. Whilst in the canyon you will be well looked after, the mixture of cruising down the river, leaping off ledges and sliding down rock faces keeps your heart beating and a smile on your face. Must say the trek... More

Awesome perspective of the park! Scenery, guides, equipment, food and organisation were all top notch. Wish we had bought the photos - the staff put so much effort in. Super fun happy times!

Glad you enjoyed it CDL_28. Not too late to buy the photos either if you still want them. Just shoot an email to info@cradlemountaincanyons.com.au with your address and the tour you were on and I can organise that. More

My first canyoning experience last Tuesday (19/1) was brilliant. The gear we were given was great and kept us well protected. The expertise and friendliness of the guides was exceptional. I loved all the challenges and certainly will recommend cradle mountain canyoning to everyone. I want to go back and do the all day trip. Thanks Guys
