Planned event: Dove Lake car park and shuttle bus service
Applies from 14/5/2020

​​​​​​During the construction of the Viewing Shelter, private vehicles will not have access beyond the Ronny Creek car park at any time of day during the construction period from April 2020 to July 2021. 

The shuttle bus service will continue to operate throughout the construction. Private vehicle access between the visitor centre, Ronny Creek and Dove Lake (along Dove Lake Road) is not permitted during shuttle bus operating times. ​

The Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre and shuttle bus are operating under a Covidsafe plan - based on current Department of Health advice. The shuttle service is classified as a public transport service and exempt from the 2m2 per person and 1.5m physical distancing obligations, just as metro and school buses are. For safety advice see Safe travel on public transport​.

Shuttlebus COVID Safe Guidelines:

  • When queuing for and boarding the bus try to keep a minimum distance of 1.5 metre from other passengers.
  • Use the hand sanitizer and follow driver instructions on entering the bus.
  • ​Avoid touching surfaces whenever you can and don’t touch your face.
  • Where there is available space, spread out as much as you can and leave a spare seat between passengers not from the same family or household. 
  • There will be some peak visitor use times which may result in all seats being occupied. Occasionally some passengers may stand in the aisle.
  • If you are seeking to board a bus which has a high number of passengers, consider waiting for the next service.
  • As it is difficult to physically distance on the bus, you may choose to wear a facemask. These are available at the Cradle Mountain Visitor Centre.
