  • WALKING GRADING

    Cradle Mountain Hut 6 Day Walk - Walking Grading
  • A Typical Day

    Each day, each group and each guide may influence itinerary details but the following will give you an idea of daily timing:

    Days begins by fueling up with a delicious breakfast at around 7am. After packing up your gear you're off on your walking adventures! Some days require a short vehicle transfer to and/or from the trail head. You are out exploring the great outdoors all day, with plenty of short stops for snacks and to replenish our fluids.

    Your guides will prepare a well‐earned picnic lunch while out on the track. This leisurely lunch break is the perfect chance to kick back, relax and take in the scenery. After lunch you continue walking into the afternoon.

    You arrive at your accommodation with time for you to unpack and settle in. After unpacking the group gear, your guides will be busy creating the evening's meal, giving you the chance to have a shower, don clean clothes, go for a quiet stroll, or kick back with a drink. Just before of after dinner is a good time to go animal spotting with the kids... The wombats, possums and pademelons are out in force at dusk! Over dinner your guides will give an exciting and informative briefing on the following day's activities.

    Changes to Itineraries
    Local conditions may necessitate changes to sightseeing, walking and driving routes, camping and accommodation locations. While every effort will be made to provide the services and experiences as offered in our brochure, on our website, and in our trip letters, we reserve the right to vary your itinerary. In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided. The tour operator will not be liable where interruptions to itineraries are caused by weather conditions, technical problems to transport used by the tour operator, industrial action, political or civil commotion or other circumstances beyond our control. We refer you to the conditions regarding travel insurance.

    Changes in Prices
    While we will do its utmost to honour its pricing unforeseen circumstances may mean that prices may be subject to change without notice.

    Pre-Existing Medical Conditions and Age Limits
    You need to advise OCT4 PTY LTD and the tour operator on any pre-existing medical condition, mobility impairment and/or disability that might reasonably be expected to increase the risk of your requiring medical attention, or that might affect the normal conduct of a trip and the enjoyment of other trip members. OCT 4 PTY LTD and the tour operator may require an assessment of your medical condition from a qualified medical practitioner. If you fail to adequately notify the tour operator of any pre-existing medical conditions and/or disability, the tour operator reserves the right, at its reasonable discretion, to cancel your participation in a trip at any time, including after the commencement of your trip, with no right of refund if your medical condition, mobility impairment and/or disability could be reasonably expected to affect the normal conduct of the trip and the enjoyment of other trip members.

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which OCT4 Pty Ltd or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure OCT4 Pty Ltd will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    Evacuations
    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.

    reviews This was a great family holiday. We took our two kids on this hike and we all enjoyed it as a family. It was good to see them away from technology, take in the fresh clean air and exercising. The kids loved the limestone caves. This was a great family experience, full of memories that we all share together. Thank you - great holiday for a family.
