Mt. Field National Park offers a variety of walks in Tasmania’s oldest national park. It's most famous for Russell Falls and the Tall Trees. This tour explores the various walks and regions of this diverse area, which is about a 1.5 hour drive from Hobart.
Russell Falls is easily Tasmania’s most recognisable waterfall with its three-tiered drop. An easy and enjoyable walk along a track takes you to the waterfall and beyond to Horseshoe Falls. The tour makes its way along the Tall Trees Track where high giant Swamp Gums stand 80 metres tall. This is a series of short, nature walks amongst the cool and quiet rainforest, eucalypts trees, running streams, and local wildlife.
Travelling further into the national park, the tour joins the Pandani Grove Trail, which takes you around the alpine Lake Dobson. Soak up the wilderness and surrounding mountain air in this less-visited region. Lake Dobson is often covered in a layer of ice and surrounded with snow in the winter months – it's gorgeous! The vegetation dates back to Gondwanaland days giving this area an enchanting and ancient feel.
The tour stops for a lunch break at Mt. Field before continuing onwards for the day. Next, the tour continues to Bonorong Wildlife Park, which is home to rescued wildlife. You'll get to see and learn about Tasmanian Devils and wallabies!
To top off this very Tasmanian day, the tour heads to the summit of Kunyani/Mt. Wellington (1271m), Hobart’s iconic backdrop. The views from the top are breathtaking. This is a fantastic way to wrap up a day exploring many of Tassie’s most unique and noteworthy experiences, rainforests, waterfalls, wines, wildlife, and scenery. The tour returns to your Hobart CBD hotel around 5.00 – 5.30 pm.
