1 Sh­effield mu­rals

Wan­der Tas­ma­nia’s ‘Town of Mu­rals’, where nearly ev­ery wall tells a painted tale of the North West’s his­tory.

2 Wine, cider and beer

Leave enough space in the car to take home the best of the North West’s cideries, vine­yards and brew­eries. Try Sprey­ton Cider, Blue Pen­guin Wines and Seven Sheds Brew­ery.

3 Mt Roland

Of­ten over­looked, this craggy peak war­rants more at­ten­tion. If climb­ing it, al­low a full day from Gowrie Park.

4 Mar­i­ons Look­out

Climb to the clas­sic Cra­dle Moun­tain look­out point, get­ting a taste of the famed Over­land Track along the way.

5 Cra­dle Moun­tain Canyons

See what lies be­neath the skin of Cra­dle Moun­tain by ab­seil­ing, leap­ing and wad­ing through Dove Canyon.

6 Kayak on Dove Lake

Bring your kayaks and see Cra­dle Moun­tain from a unique per­spec­tive – atop the wa­ters of Dove Lake.

7 Pen­guin pro­duce

Stock up on jams and sauces at Pick­led Sis­ters Pantry, try heritage-breed ba­con at

Mt Gnomon Farm and sam­ple award-win­ning oil at nearby Cra­dle Coast Olives. Cre­ate your own ham­per to take home to the main­land.

8 Leven Canyon

Hike into Tas­ma­nia’s lit­tle-known ‘Grand Canyon’. View it from the cliff-top look­out 275m above the river, or de­scend into its vast depths.

9 Gar­diner Point

Stand at Gar­diner Point as waves and wind roar ashore and you’ll won­der if this re­ally is the Edge of the World.

The Nut

Brush off your walk­ing shoes and climb the short but steep trail onto The Nut, an an­cient vol­canic plug ris­ing above Stan­ley, or take the chair­lift to the top and en­joy the views as it as­cends. Sim­ply breath­tak­ing.
