What to Expect
Enjoy the drive through the Derwent Valley, past New Norfolk and into rich farming land as you head southwest to Mount Field National Park. Along the way, stop at The Salmon Ponds, where you can feed salmon and learn the history of trout fishing in Tasmania at this historic salmon hatchery.
Continue to the national park, home to Russell Falls, one of the most accessible and most photographed waterfalls in Tasmania. Spot glow worms as you stroll through temperate rainforest, past mossy glens and under giant man ferns. Grab a bite to eat at Waterfalls Café in the national park (not included).
Tasmania is a natural haven for Australian wildlife, and there are species here that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. Get up close and personal with the notorious Tasmanian Devil, cute wombats, fluffy quolls, possums, wallabies and a large variety of birdlife at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. Don’t forget to have a chat with Fred, the 100-year-old cockatoo!
Finally, step back in time in the pretty historic village of Richmond. See the oldest convict constructed sandstone bridge, browse through antique shops, and call into the oldest Catholic Church in Australia. Plus, there’s an old-school lolly shop for those with a sweet tooth.
