Cradle Mountain Canyoning: Dove Canyon
USD 181.10
Indulge your inner daredevil with a full-day canyoning expedition in the Cradle Mountain Canyons. Explore the UNESCO-listed landscapes of Tasmania as you hike through the rainforest, abseil down canyon walls and waterfalls, and brave hair-raising cliff jumps and waterslides, including the 10-meter-high ‘Laundry Shoot’. This small-group tour is suitable for all skill levels, including first timers, and includes lunch.
What to Expect
Your tour begins at the Cradle Mountain Canyons office early morning where you will be kitted out with wetsuits and other gear before traveling a short distance by bus to your first stop.

Begin your day with a 45-minute walk into the canyon passing through spectacular button grass plains, ancient rain forests while taking in incredible views of Cradle Mountain.

After a thorough safety talk from an experienced and qualified guide,abseil into the canyon where you can spend approximately three hours in the canyon, jumping and sliding off waterfalls, walking and floating through the calm stretches in between. In all, there are six waterfalls to get down. The highest jump is about seven meters. As there is no way for you to walk around each waterfall, you will need to abseil or jump down each waterfall.

At the end of the tour there is an approximately one hour walk out of the canyon. The first twenty minutes of this is up a steep hill in a wetsuit to get back to where dry clothes have been left (definitely the hardest part of the day physically). Groups then drive back to the office where the tour began and have the option to purchase photos of the tour.

End your day after a short bus trip back to Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre

awesome experience - fun, a bit challenging and beautiful place

Took my two teenage boys on the Dove trip - we all loved it. Jumping into pools over waterfalls was awesome, going down the laundry shoot exhilarating
