2 April 2011 No Comment

Children playing Cradle Mountain National ParkThe holiday to Cradle Mountain is booked, the accommodation is sorted, travel plans arranged and now you’re looking at what to do once you’re there?

There are plenty of family focused activities on offer in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St. Clair region that cater to a wide range of age groups.

The National Park is filled with all the magic and beauty that nature can offer, but if you don’t mind travelling a little further afield, you’re sure to discover some wonderful, regional treasures!

A brilliant resource is the About Australia website  Included in this very comprehensive list are:

  • 41 Degrees South Salmon Farm and Ginseng Farm – for insight into the world of eco-fish farming.
  • The Honey Farm – with child minding and child activities
  • For art, craft and … chocolate, visit La Trobe’s House of Anvers Chocolate Factory.
  • Explore the many caves in the region, including King Solomons Cave, Marakoopa Cave or Gunns Plain Cave.
  • The Platypus Experience, Redwater Creek Railway and Tasmanian Tiger Exhibition are sure to delight families of all ages.
  • A visit to the Looking Glass Cottage and Imaginarium Science Centre will delight the inner scientist in everyone.

More activities are listed through www.kidsdayout.com.au including:

  • The Lost World Canyon, up close and personal with nature (8years +).
  • Cradle Mountain Day Tours with short walks that are great for small feet (2 hours) or longer walks for longer legs (3-4 hours).
  • Devils@Cradle and Daisy the Devil tickets available from the Discovery Holiday Parks – Cradle Mountain Reception.
  • When booking your Devils@Cradle tickets, ask about the Night Spotlight Tour, a night time wilderness and wildlife tour in the comfort of a 4WD bus.

Remember to always check the full details of the attraction before you head off on your adventure.  That way, you’re sure to make the most of Tasmanian’s Western Wilderness!
