So many animals with such great explanation of the animals and their habitat. Our guide, Belinda, was so knowledgeable and made it a truly memorable experience. It really set us for the rest of our time in this amazing World Heritage park.

We had the absolute BEST time on the after-dark wildlife spotting tour! I am so glad we decided to do it. It was like nothing I have ever experienced before. James, our guide, was exceptional. Would definitely do it again and recommend to others. 10/10!!! See for yourself!

This was an amazing experience, we had a great tour guide, she was excellent, we were very lucky to experience the appearance of many Possums, Wallabies, Wombats & a Quoll, this was done in their own environment, and got to experience what they see at night. Runs for a few hours, which is long enough to stay at night in colder weather.

We did the late tour which was fantastic. Very knowledgable and enthusiastic local guide and heaps of active wildlife (We even spotted an elusive quoll!). It was great to see and stroll parts of Cradle Mountain Park at night. The McDermotts bus was comfortable with plenty of room to move around and see.

Awesome!

Very much fun to have a night out with guide Andie and our other fellow explorers! Next to spotting some wildlife, the people in the bus quickly became a family. A recommondation for sure! Only drawbacks? Not all windows in the bus can open and the tour feels just too darn short!

Our tour guide Rita was brilliant and it was obvious that she was delighted to show us the amazing animals (wombats, possums, quolls, pademelons and wallabies) that we were lucky enough to see on our tour! The kids and I loved it and leant a lot about the animals that inhabit Cradle Mountain!
