Cradle Mountain canyoning and outdoors

Shared by |tags, , , ,

Tasmania is home to many marvels of nature, open for you to discover and explore throughout the state. For example, the Cradle Mountain Canyons offer a wide variety of activities to fully experience the natural wonder of the island.

Found 60km from Devonport, the canyons are part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage area, and home to idyllic streams and rugged mountains that are guaranteed to mesmerise you.

Cradle Mountain Canyons offer quality outdoor activities including abseiling and canoeing through the deep quartzite canyons.

The Lost Canyon trip gives you a first hand look at the beautiful upper section of Dove River, and is recommended for those looking to take some time out and soak up the wonder of nature.

For the thrill seekers out there, Dove Canyon showcases the Tasmanian wild at its best. The trip involves a combination of abseiling, slides and jumps through a 50m deep canyon. While there is no prerequisite for canyoning or abseiling experience, competence at swimming is a must!

If you're keen to climb to the summit of Cradle Mountain, you should put aside five to six hours for the trip. But reaching the top graces you with an incredible 360 degree view of the surroundings that needs to be seen to be believed.
