Full description
Following pick-up from Hobart's CBD, transfer to Mt. Field National Park. Here, you will take a series of walks in Tasmania’s oldest national park. Famous for Russell Falls and the tall gum trees along its scenic walks, Mt. Field National Park is only a 90-minute drive from Hobart. With its 3-tiered drop, Russell Falls is easily Tasmania’s most recognizable waterfall. It's an easy and enjoyable walk along a beautiful track to Russell Falls and Horseshoe Falls beyond. Make your way along the Tall Trees Track to see the 80-meter tall Swamp Gum trees. Enjoy the cool, quiet rainforest atmosphere of eucalyptus, streams and local wildlife. Then join the Pandani Grove Trail around the alpine Lake Dobson. Soak up the wilderness and surrounding mountain air in a lesser-visited area of the park. Lake Dobson is often covered in a layer of ice and surrounded by snow in the winter. During the summer you can spot platypus. The vegetation dates back to the Gondwanaland era to give the area an enchanting and ancient feel. Enjoy a lunch break in one of the numerous beautiful settings of Mt. Field. Then visit Bonorong Wildlife Park to explore the home of rescued wildlife. Get up close to Tasmanian Devils and see wallabies freely hopping around the park. End with a striking view from the top of Mt. Wellington. Head to the summit (1,271 meters) for an expansive vista. Then return to your hotel in Hobart's CBD at around 17:30.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It was an easy walk to Russell Falls, then an option of going up higher, or returning. I chose to return, as my legs don't like steps now! The Tall Trees track was interesting, and an easy walk. Bonorong Wildlife park was enjoyable, and to finish off the day, we were lucky enough to have a clear afternoon for Mt Wellington, which was really good. Our guide, David, gave an interesting commentary all day.

    First-rate in all respects. Organisation and management of the 9-person group was friendly but firm. Although we were advised to bring warm, waterproof clothing extras were provided. Our guide/driver, Audrey, is able to impart her knowledge of the plants, animals, farming methods etc of the area in an informal but informative way because she so obviously loves the subjects herself. Her enthusiasm is very infectious!

    This day was really great! Andrew was our local guide and he was very passionate and knowledgeable, always pointing out different plants and wildlife on our walks and taking us to hidden gems. Very chilled out dude, and his ability to tweak the day’s itinerary meant we had the optimal experience for that day and weather etc.
