Wilderness, Waterfalls & Wildlife await you on this spectacular experience taking in Tasmania's unique nature and natural attractions just a short drive (1.5 hours) from Hobart City.
Departing the port we head first to Mt.Field National Park, this offers an introduction to Tasmania's spectacular forests and tall trees with around 1.5 hours of easy walking trails for us to explore.
An easy and enjoyable walk along a beautiful forest track takes us to the famous and photogenic 3 tiered Russell Falls. For the energetic you can continue a short but uphill walk to Horseshoe Falls before returning back to re-join the group as we complete the Russell Falls walk.
We continue along the Tall Trees Track where towering above us (80 plus meters) are the huge "Swamp Gums" the Giants of the Forest. Further along, we enter the quiet and peaceful Alpine Region of the National Park. We walk the Pandani Trail where the unique flora dates back to Gondwanan days.
Relax in the beautiful National Park surrounds for a picnic [lunch can be bought on the way] before we make our way to Bonorong Wildlife Park.
