This morning is your last day at Cradle Mountain. After breakfast and making lunches your guide will pack the trailer and then you will head off on your walk. Today you will wander through typical Tasmanian rainforest around Dove Lake. The lake is one of the best-known walks in Tasmania, the Dove Lake Circuit is also the most easily accessible short walk in the Cradle Mountain region. At just 6km, the flat, gravel and duckboard track is very easy going, leaving you to focus entirely on the jagged peak of Cradle Mountain, which looms above the track. Depending on the weather, Cradle Mountain can seem brooding, pastoral or inviting. Along the way, there is a great mix of terrain including scrubby button grass, sandy beaches, cascading streams and at the mid-point of the walk, a very special rainforest known as the Ballroom Forest.

After your walk you will hop back into the vehicle and depart Cradle Mountain. Enroute to Launceston there will be a stop so you can have a bit of a wander and purchase any refreshments you may like. The tour aims to arrive back in Launceston by about 4:00pm. You can be dropped off either at the Grand Chancellor in central Launceston or at the airport, just let our guide know!

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
 
Tour Guide:
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group.
 
Tour Leader:
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however, they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined.
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
