Wat is inbegrepen?
Mt. Field offers a variety of walks in one of Tasmania’s oldest National Parks. Most famous for Russell Falls & the Tall Trees track we explore the various walks in this diverse Park which is a short 1.5 hour drive from Hobart.
The Three Falls Circuit and Tall Trees Walk form a loop of the lower rainforest section of Mount Field National Park. The full circuit walk of 6kms, over reasonably easy terrain covers the parks highlights of Russell Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Lady Barron Falls & the Tall Trees Track. Russell Falls is easily Tasmania’s most recognisable waterfall with its 3-tiered drop. It is an easy and enjoyable walk along a beautiful forest track among mixed forest and temperate rainforest species. This is Tassie’s most photographed waterfall, and we soak up the awesome view before continuing our walk. Just beyond Russell Falls we climb the stairs to Horseshoe Falls, a majestic waterfall snuggled in the forest, which some regard as even more impressive than Russell Falls! We continue along the Three Falls Circuit and enter the section known as the Tall Trees Track. High above us stand the giant Swamp Gums around 80 metres tall, the world's tallest flowering plant. From here, we have the option to continue the full circuit along the Three Falls Circuit, taking us onwards to Lady Barron Falls, or for the less active, we can return back to our start point.
We enjoy our lunch break in one of the many beautiful picnics setting of the National Park.
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. We time our visit here for a Tasmanian Devil feeding, a fun and interactive experience with our special endangered Devils.
To top off this very Tasmanian day we head to the summit of kunanyi /Mt. Wellington. Standing high above Hobart at 1271m on a clear day is nothing short of spectacular. The views from the top are 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 to Hobart around 5.30pm.
We return you to your Hobart central city accommodation around 5.30 – 6.00pm.

All tour participants will be participating in outdoor, active activities and therefore subject to the outdoor weather conditions of the day.
We educate all our guests on Minimal Impact Bushwalking and the Leave No Trace policy’s before entering our National Parks.
