Just completed an enthralling Cradle Mountain 4 day walk hosted / guided by the Tasmanian Walking Company, which exceeded all expectations. From the admin and support staff to the guides, these guys are organised and efficient. Their base is in the grounds of Quamby Estate approx. 30 minutes from Launceston, which is a great place to shower and clean up after the walk or even bunk down if you wish. We only did a 4 day walk from Waldheim to Arm River due to time constraints, but were wishing we had the full 6 days. The scenery is spectacular and diverse, the environment is pristine (no rubbish). The guides Mitch and Alice were brilliant! They are young, fit (very fit) and vibrant, fountains of knowledge on the history and flora and pretty good cooks as well. The quality of food was far better than expected and the local wines tasted pretty good too. We didn't have any rain but were grateful for the hot showers and heaters at the end of each day. Brilliant trip, can't wait to go back and complete the rest of the track.
