Mount Field National Park is the oldest in Tasmania and one of the most diverse. Guests will have the opportunity to spot 11 out of the 12 Tasmanian endemic species including the Tasmanian Native Hen, Scrubtit, Yellow Wattlebird, Black Currawong and Tasmanian Thornbill across this park featuring amazing plant diversity; from lush Eucalyptus temperate rainforest to alpine moorland. These forests date back over 60 million years, when Australia was attached to Antarctica, Africa, South America and New Zealand as part of the Gondwana supercontinent.
Other highlights include the Pandani Grove walk around Lake Dobson, the three-tier Russell Falls and the vivid Autumn colours of Fagus tree, Australia's only cold climate, deciduous tree. Encounters with Tasmanian Pademelons, Bennett's Wallabies and Platypus are regular delights for visitors, with occasional sightings of the gorgeous Pink Robin.
Travellers will be met by an expert local guide in Hobart, before venturing into Mount Field National Park, the oldest National Park in Tasmania. Guests will be mesmerised by the lush forest landscapes with expert interpretation provided along the rainforest walk to Russell Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the Tall Trees; an opportunity to see some of the largest and majestic trees in the world. This cool temperate rainforest allows guests the opportunity to search for almost all of the Tasmanian endemic bird species (11 out of 12) including the Scrubtit, Black Currawong, Black-headed & Strong-billed Honeyeater, Tasmanian Thornbill and Dusky Robin. After lunch you will have an opportunity to observe Platypus in the wild.
