Excellent, highly recommend

Seeing wild animals in their environment was excellent. Very knowledgeable and professional guide. Tour started right on time.
Cradle at night

We did the late tour which was fantastic. Very knowledgable and enthusiastic local guide and heaps of active wildlife (We even spotted an elusive quoll!). It was great to see and stroll parts of Cradle Mountain Park at night. The McDermotts bus was comfortable with plenty of room to move around and see.

Very much fun to have a night out with guide Andie and our other fellow explorers! Next to spotting some wildlife, the people in the bus quickly became a family. A recommondation for sure! Only drawbacks? Not all windows in the bus can open and the tour feels just too darn short!

Our tour guide Rita was brilliant and it was obvious that she was delighted to show us the amazing animals (wombats, possums, quolls, pademelons and wallabies) that we were lucky enough to see on our tour! The kids and I loved it and leant a lot about the animals that inhabit Cradle Mountain!
