The iconic Cradle Mountain Huts and Bay of Fires Lodge Walks in northern Tasmania take guests on an expedition through the World Heritage listed Cradle Mountain or along the pristine beaches of the north eastern coastline of Tasmania in a diversity of landscapes, from sedgeland moors, glacial mountain lakes and rainforests, to craggy peaks, button grass plains, alpine meadows and spectacular waterfalls.

This season has seen the introduction of “Adventure Walks” for those looking for something a little more challenging. Until the end of season on May 1, 2013, walkers have the option to climb the mountains that are found along the way. These include Cradle Mountain, Barn Bluff, Mt. Oakleigh and Mt. Ossa providing some of the most outstanding views in the country.


Well-known Tasmanian chef Daniel Alps will return to the Walks this year, designing the new season menus and training the guides to use the best of local Tasmanian produce and other seasonal ingredients. And if you’re choosing the Bay of Fires Lodge Walk adventure, your return journey has a stop at renowned winemaker, Andrew Pirie’s new winery near Labrina. Credited for his award-winning wines at Ninth Island and Piper’s Brook Vineyards, Andrew will be offering guests the chance to try his new sparkling wine variety and some delicious canapés before returning to their Launceston accommodation or the airport.

Each of the walks commences at the walking base in the converted stables building at the beautifully restored Quamby Estate heritage homestead, about 20 minutes outside of Launceston.
