Sheffield, our base is a beautiful town close to Cradle Mountain overlooked by Mt Roland. Famous for the murals painted on the buildings, perfect for an evening stroll. The IGA has all your last-minute provisions, there is a wide choice of restaurants and a very good pub. Transfers to the start at Cradle Mountain is just 35 minutes.

In the morning leave any bags for us to store and enjoy our complimentary continental breakfast.

We then transfer you to the start at Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre, a short scenic 40-minute drive.

This will mean that you will be the first group to check in, beating the queue and providing plenty of time to climb Cradle Mountain if you want to do that.

We meet you again, once you finish at the Lake St Clair Visitor Centre on a date and time that suits you with any stored luggage and then transfer you to Launceston or Devonport.

Our flexible personalised low cost transfers allow for any combination, meaning you can arrive at one city and depart from another.

We also are able to offer a self drive option where you leave your car with us or at Lake St Clair.


Devonport, offers the lowest transfer cost and least driving time. The ferry arrives both in the morning and late afternoon from Melbourne or fly from Melbourne. The journey to our accommodation is 20 minutes.

Launceston has flights from Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney and takes just over one hour to our accommodation in Sheffield.

You can use public transport to Sheffield from Devonport and the cheapest option.

We can also meet you in Deloraine or Perth which you can reach on the Redline Bus from Hobart.

Overland Track Self Drive

Being a one-way walk from Cradle Mountain to Lake St Clair a car has to be parked at the end. We solve this problem for you.

Park your car at Lake St Clair where we meet you on an agreed date and time and drive you to Sheffield where you spend the night in one of our very comfortable apartments.  In the morning we take you to the start at Cradle Mountain just 35 minutes’ drive. Your car is available for you when you finish giving you full flexibility.

The alternative is park with us in Sheffield, spend the night in our well-appointed apartment. The next morning, we will take you to the start at Cradle Mountain. We agree a date and time to pick you up in Lake St Clair and bring you back to your car in Sheffield.


We see each year at peak times so many groups that stuggle to obtain transport as they have left it too late.

Please do send us details at an early stage. No payment is made until closer to your departure date.
