Tarkine & Cradle Mountain 5-day Trek
This tour combines the magnificent Tarkine Wilderness and the world-renowned Cradle Mountain. Spend three days exploring the rainforest and coastal region of the Tarkine with a cruise on the MV Arcadia, a hike up Mount Donaldson and a visit to beautiful Philosophers Falls.
We spend two days wandering the trails of Cradle Mountain and embark on some fantastic hikes visiting Dove Lake and Marion’s Lookout. The beauty of this trip is that it combines two great destinations in the one tour.
You’ll travel with our local, passionate Tasmanian guiding team and enjoy healthy, wholesome and hearty meals. As with all Park Trek tours, the focus is on hiking and exploring the natural surrounds, connecting with the natural world.
The hiking on this tour is moderate with one harder day while in Cradle Mountain. You’ll enjoy waterfalls, coastline, rainforest and mountains along with plenty of wildlife and comfortable accommodation.

By joining this adventure you will also raise funds to support Hummingbird House, so that more families like Archie’s can receive vital care and create precious memories.
Mum Jenna recalls the day her beautiful boys Archie and Henry were born. “Like any other young family expecting their first child, or in our case twins, we were excited about what lay ahead for our instant family of four. The boys were born 10 weeks early at Mater Mothers’ Hospital on the 4th of August 2018. Henry was born healthy and just needed a little time to grow and learn how to suck feed before we were able to take him home 6 weeks later. Archie was born with Chronic Neonatal Lung Disease and Interstitial Lung Disease and later confirmed Alveolar Growth Simplification.”
Even with such a devastating diagnosis, Archie was determined to follow his own path. “Archie defied the odds at every turn. He survived the first weekend, first few weeks, and we made it to their due date and then our first Christmas together as a family of four. We were lucky enough to be able to spend 5.5 months getting to know our little superhero.”
Funds raised from adventure will help Hummingbird House continue to provide cost-free support and care for children and families throughout Queensland.
