WHAT TO EXPECT
This day trip is a nature lover’s dream. Start the day with a picturesque journey through the Derwent Valley to Mt. Field National Park. It's Tasmania's first national park and has excellent nature walks, beautiful vistas, and plenty of wildlife including native mammals, endangered species, and 11 of Tasmania's 12 endemic birds.
Russell Falls is the star attraction at Mt. Field National Park. It’s a short stroll underneath enormous fern forests and some of the world’s tallest trees to these multi-level cascading falls. This pretty waterfall is one of the most photographed attractions and even featured on Australia's first stamp.
After the calming effects of the tranquil walks, we follow the freshwater to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. This small sanctuary is run by a passionate team invested in preserving Australia's endangered wildlife. You'll see the elusive Tasmanian Devils, wombats, koalas, quolls, echidnas, sugar gliders, plus birds including tawny frogmouths and yellow-tailed black cockatoos. There are kangaroos that roam free within the Sanctuary and are always keen for a good scratch on the chest and gentle hand feeding.
Next up is a trip to the picturesque town of Richmond for a lunch stop (meals are not included). If you want to try the local food, then you can't go past a Tasmanian Scallop pie, which is just one of the wonders found in Richmond. Take time to wander around this quaint town and take a photograph of the oldest bridge in Australia. The Richmond Bridge is a heritage-listed sandstone arch bridge that's spanned the Coal River since 1825.
The final stop on the itinerary on the way back to Hobart is the summit of Mt. Wellington. Here you'll enjoy breathtaking, panoramic views of Hobart, Bruny Island, South Arm, and the Tasman Peninsula, so don't forget your camera. Depending on the weather and cloud cover, you might visit Mt. Wellington first in the day, to ensure the best possible views.
