Cradle shuttle service to continue through winter


The popular shuttle service at Cradle Mountain will continue to operate throughout winter, providing access to Dove Lake during snowy conditions.

Parks and Wildlife Service general manager Peter Mooney said the expansion of the service this year was in recognition of the benefits for the environment and visitors to the popular World Heritage Area.

"The objective of the shuttle service was to reduce the traffic congestion and impacts of vehicles at Dove Lake and to provide an improved visitor experience," Mr Mooney said.

"The feedback from visitors about the shuttle service has been overwhelming positive and although there is reduced demand during winter, we are keen to see that the great service provided by McDermotts Coaches to Cradle visitors continues this winter.

"The shuttle buses will have the capacity to operate in snow conditions when the Dove Lake Road is restricted to four wheel drive access only, and that is a real bonus for visitors to be able to see this spectacular environment in picturesque snowy conditions."

The service will see two buses operating a 30 minute schedule, between 9am and 4pm, seven days per week. The winter timetable begins on Saturday, 17 May and runs through to mid-September.
