Cradle Shuttle

Explore Cradle Mountain the leisurely way with the Cradle Shuttle Service.

Visitors can leave their car outside the park and get on and off the shuttle as often as they like - it's a great way to enjoy the tranquility and peace of this ancient landscape without driving or parking hassles.

Car parks inside the Cradle Mountain park boundary fill early so plan your trip to include the shuttle.

A Cradle Mountain Day Pass includes use of the shuttle bus. The day pass combines the existing 24 hour park pass and the shuttle bus fee in a pass for those who visit Cradle Mountain for one day only.

Summer service

During the spring, summer and autumn months (September to May), the shuttle buses run every 20 minutes throughout the day and every 15 minutes during busy periods, with room for backpacks and walking gear.

Winter service

During winter the shuttle service is equipped to travel in snowy and icy conditions. The winter schedule, running mid-May through to mid-September, is less frequent with two buses running every 30 minutes from 9am to 4pm.

The shuttle connects with all popular locations and walks including the Dove Lake Circuit, the Cradle Valley Boardwalk and the Overland Track.

It departs from the Cradle Mountain Information Centre at the former airstrip, outside the park boundary (not to be confused with the Parks and Wildlife Service Visitor Centre on the edge of the park itself).
