Our trip to Cradle Mountain was in late March. The weather was varied, we even had a dusting of snow on the range above our hut. Snow was falling outside as we ate our breakfast. Just wonderful to see. We had Andy and Keith for our guides, they were absolutely wonderful. Our meals were superb, and plenty of it. Their... More

I travelled with a friend in mid April and were fortunate enough to have amazing weather so this enabled us to climb Cradle mountain, Barn Bluff and Pelion West to enjoy the spectacular views. I couldn't fault the company from the moment we were collected in Launceston to being dropped back. Our guides Nick and Andy were amazing. They worked... More

I dragged my family, 15 & 13yr boys, 11yr girl and hubby to complete this walk - something I have wanted to do for 25 years! For good measure we had 2 friends join us who had never bush walked before - prefect recipe for disaster....The result was the complete opposite, it was the most magical family experience we have...

I was the shortest, smallest and slowest but I made it! I really appreciate all my fellow walkers and the guides who patiently waited behind for me. I started with 8 others and 2 guides Ed and Keith (plus an operations manager, Grant, who joined us occasionally) on the 5 April. Apart from a little bit of rain on the... More

We started the 6 day Overland on the 29th March with Australian friends we met 5 years ago on the Milford Track. Since then we do a hike somewhere once a year and this time we decided to meet them at home. We were the only non Australians in the 10 person group. From pick up at the Sebel, to... More

This trip surpassed our expectations, the guides were both knowledgable and passionate about their work and really made us enjoy every minute. The food was fantastic and the huts really make the weather seem irrelevant (when it was bad). We had some great days, some long days (up mt oakley but worth the effort) and comfortable warm nights in spectacular... More

We walked with Cradle Huts in March, could not fault anything, the guides were informative and very supportive, which I needed as I was the slowest walker out of the 10 in our group.
