Mt Field National Park - Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary

Your tour starts with a drive through historic New Norfolk, passing through hop fields, apple orchards and berry farms to Mt Field National Park.

We will spend around 2 hours exploring the National Park with the main attractions being Russell Falls, the most photographed waterfall in Tasmania, and the giant swamp gums. You can have a couple of choices of walks depending on how long you wish to walk for. Russell Falls is a short 20-minute walk there and back and I can drop you off at the top of the Big Tree Circuit (30-45 minutes) where you can see 75 metre plus hardwood eucalypts, and blackwood, sassafras and myrtle through the park. The alternative, and longer walk, is to walk from the bottom of Russell Falls to the top where you will view Horseshoe Falls before continuing on to join the Big Tree Circuit (there are quite a few steps involved).

We will return to either the Park’s café or The Possum Shed Café, at Westerway, for a light lunch and the chance of seeing the secretive platypus in the nearby Tyenna River.

Our final stop is the famous Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary where you can hand feed kangaroos, learn all about the Tasmanian Devil, and see many other native animal species.

We return to Hobart to complete your tour. Your personal and private tour allows for flexibility in itineraries.

TOUR DETAILS

Your private tour begins with the drive to Hamilton where Curringa Sheep Farm awaits. You will join a 2-hour farm tour that includes sheep shearing, working farm dogs, viewing crops in season, forest walk and morning tea with fresh home-made scones with jam and cream.

We will then visit a Raspberry Farm in Westerway (Seasonal) before stopping off at the Possum Shed Cafe for a bite to eat and sometimes, if you're lucky, you may spot a platypus in the local river below.

We will then visit the Mount Field National Park and the beautiful Russell Falls with a short rainforest walk amongst the giant swamp gums of Tasmania. There is the chance to see one of our cute wallabies, the pademelon.

As this is a working farm sometimes the tours are in the afternoon instead which means the day gets swapped around. The Farm tour has a minimum number required before it runs, so you will join in with others if it is running.

TOUR DETAILS

Pick Up in Hobart: 8:00am
Return to Hobart: 6:00pm

Lake Pedder and Gordon Dam

Tasmania's wilderness is a headline act in “The Hunter” – a movie filmed and set in this State and starring Hollywood actor Willem Dafoe. This is the renowned area of the extinct Tasmania Tiger.

Your tour starts with pick-up from your hotel followed by a scenic drive through the apple orchards and berry farms beyond historic New Norfolk and the Hop Fields at Bushy Park.

We stop off at either The Possum Shed Café, at Westerway, or Mount Field Visitor Centre for morning tea. We will spend around an hour in Mount Field National Park. Firstly, we will take the 20-minute return walk to see the beautiful Russell Falls and then walk the Tall Trees Circuit to view some of the giant Swamp Gums and ferns that thrive in this very ancient rainforest. We will pick up lunch to take away with us for a picnic along the journey or, if the cafe is open at Lake Pedder Lodge, we can enjoy lunch there. (to be discussed on the day)

We then make our way out to Gordon Dam driving along picturesque roads in view of often snow-capped mountains in the background during the winter months. On your way you will experience some of the highlights of where parts of the movie, "The Hunter", was filmed. We will also explore the short, but challenging, Creepy Crawly Nature Trail.

The pinnacle of the trip, so to speak, is a walk on Gordon Dam (if you have the head for heights). This is an impressive piece of engineering, standing at 140 metres in height, making it the tallest dam in Tasmania. It was constructed by the Hydro Electric Commission and completed in 1974.

To break up your journey back to Hobart we will do the Junee Cave Walk on the edge of the Southwest National Park, at Maydena. The walk takes us through some picturesque fern glades to the entrance of a cave where the Junee River disappears underground. The walk is around 30-minutes return.

We will then make our way back to Hobart to your accommodation.
