Single Day Tour

Whether travelling from Launceston or if you've stopped overnight in Deloraine, load up a good breakfast and brew and prepare your best pair of walking shoes to walk their best miles yet.

Past Deloraine, yet before reaching the peaks of Cradle Mountain, those with an adventurous streak will be satisfied by a short alpine walk to a stunning lookout platform overhanging a sheer cliff face. From Devils Gullet Lookout take in the magnificent views of Tasmania's Central Plateau (40 minutes return).

Continue by car on the short drive to Westmorland Falls. Another of Tasmania's 60 Great Short Walks this is an adventurous hike through rainforest on a well formed but sometimes muddy track. Fossils embedded into the creek bed and a stunning waterfall leave you with the feeling that you've only just scratched the surface (2 hours return).


A brief drive from the Westmorland Falls car park venture into Mole Creek, after so much walking enjoy lunch and a local craft beer, cider, or coffee. 

Just minutes from Mole Creek, complete your adventure with a visit to the spectacular King Solomon's and Marakoopa Caves. Highly decorated, and home to the Tasmanian cave spider, complete your day by playing 'spot the glow-worm' on the cave ceiling.


Set amongst beautiful cottage gardens with spectacular views of the Great Western Tiers Mountain Range, the variety of accommodation options at Mole Creek Cabins will have you putting your feet up and resting for your next walking adventure.

Make your way to Pine Lake for your first walk of the day. Consisting of a boardwalk across alpine landscape of ancient pencil pines you will trek towards a perched lake. Pencil pines are often seen around the shores of highland lakes and tarns, creating the unique ambience of these beautiful areas of Tasmania (30 min return).


Now that you've carved a path through Pine Lake, take the time to find a grassy knoll and crack open the picnic hamper that's been perfectly packed for such a fine occasion. Indulge in some of Tasmania's finest artisan goodies and graze on the local landscape.

It's time to walk off all that local produce and the next trek known as Liffey Falls Walk is one through Tasmania's World Heritage Area past eucalypts and massive tree ferns to an impressive series of waterfalls. Camera, phone, and Instagram at the ready, it is here you'll capture some great shots at the many lookout points along the way.
