This itinerary would also be a great way to spend your day if you’re travelling to Cradle Mountain for a night.
Go west into the wilderness and take the backroads towards Cradle Mountain. There’s a whole days worth of activities and experiences in the Meander Valley under the steely gaze of the Great Western Tiers mountain range before you even get to Cradle. Take the time and enjoy the journey.
It’s another hours drive through to Cradle Mountain, or turn around and take a different direction back to Launceston. On the A1 Bass Highway you’ll find Christmas Hills Raspberry Farm and Ashgrove Cheeses, then roll back into Launceston with your senses and bellies full.
