I'll be travelling in a group of three, including my mum who is in her sixties. She'll join us for some walks so would appreciate any advice on some gentler 2 to 3 hour walks. Otherwise my partner and I are of reasonable fitness but a bit embarrassed to say we are a couple of city slickers without much outdoors experience but really keen to make the most of the beautiful location. We're looking for walks of 3 to 4 hours duration. Finally I really love Tasmanian devils and would love to see some. Are there any day trips where we could see some? All advice appreciated. I've been researching on some tourist websites but the number of options are a bit overwhelming. Also we are travelling in early January. Any advice on clothing or footwear? I thought we could wear sneakers but apparently that won't do and that we need hiking shoes?
Thanks in advance for any help.
