      Mt Field, Mt Wellington and Bonorong Wildlife Park

      You will be picked up in Hobart around 7,30am and taken straight into the Wilderness to Russell Falls. Russell Falls is easily Tasmania’s most recognisable waterfall with its 3 tiered drop. You will take an easy and enjoyable walk along a beautiful track that takes us to this photogenic waterfall and beyond to Horseshoe Falls. You will then walk the Tall Trees Track where high above us stand the giant Swamp Gums 80 metres tall. This is a series of short, spectacular walks amongst the cool and quiet rainforest, eucalypts, streams and local wildlife. Further up into the National Park we join the Pandani Grove Trail which takes us around the alpine Lake Dobson. Soak up the wilderness and surrounding mountain air in this lesser visited region of the park. Lake Dobson is often covered in a layer of ice and surrounded with snow in the winter months – just gorgeous! The vegetation dates back to Gondwanan days giving this area an enchanting and ancient feel. We enjoy a lunch break in one of the numerous beautiful settings at Mt. Field before continuing onwards for the day. Now for some native Australian wildlife spotting. You will enter Bonorong Wildlife Park. Bonorong is home to many of our rescued and well loved wildlife. You will have a guided tour of the park so you can get up close and personal with the native animals. Including a Tasmanian Devil Feeding and the opportunity to pat Wombats and other wildlife. To end your totally Tasmanian tour we head to the summit of Mt. Wellington (1271m) Hobart’s iconic backdrop. The views from the top are breathtaking and the vista is expansive. This is a fantastic way to wrap up a day exploring many of Tassie’s most unique experiences, rainforests, waterfalls, wildlife and fabulous scenery.
