From there, walk the Pandani Grove Trail along Lake Dobson, which is often covered in ice and surrounded by snow in the winter. The tour also includes a stop at Bonorong Wildlife Park, home to rescued Australian wildlife. Here, interact with kangaroos, Tasmanian devils, wallabies, and more. Finally, head to the summit of Mount Wellington with an elevation of 4,170 feet (1271 meters) and take in the expansive views of the region.

A brilliant tour, guided by the superbly knowledgeable Rick. All inclusions within the day are equally spectacular for different reasons, and it’s a brilliant way of exploring some of Tasmania.More
