    Russell Falls
    Stop: 11 hours - Admission included
    Mt. Field National Park offers a variety of walks in Tasmania’s oldest National Park. Most famous for Russell Falls & the Tall Trees we explore the various walks and regions of this diverse area which is only a 1.5 hr drive from Hobart. Russell Falls is easily Tasmania’s most recognisable waterfall with its 3-tiered drop. It is an easy and enjoyable walk along a beautiful track that takes us to this photogenic waterfall and beyond to Horseshoe Falls. We also make our way along 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 to Gondwanaland 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. We visit Bonorong Wildlife Park which is home to many of our rescued and well-loved wildlife. Tassie Devils are close up; wallabies are freely hopping around the park and many more of our local favourites are easily discovered here. To top off this very Tasmanian day we head to the summit of kunanyi /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 and noteworthy experiences, rainforests, waterfalls, wildlife and fabulous scenery. We return you to your Hobart central city accommodation around 5.30 – 6.00pm.

We had an excellent guide, Dan. He arrived on the dot at 7.10 to pick up from hotel. It was an active day for me, 18000 steps. We walked quite briskly round Lake Dobson because it had started to snow. We had lunch by the river banks. I appreciated the tour not stopping at

The trip was great and our guide Nick was very helpful. As the weather was bad we could not see anything on top of Mt Wellington but at least I was happy I was there. Just before reaching the top we had a nice view of Hobart.
