Experience some of Tasmania’s most unique treasures from spectacular Russell Falls, the Tall Tress, Tassie Devils & Hobart’s Mt. Wellington.
Russell Falls is easily Tasmania’s most recognizable waterfall with its 3 tiered drop. It is an easy and enjoyable walk along a beautiful track which takes you to this photogenic waterfall and beyond to Horseshoe Falls. You’ll make your way along the Tall Trees Track where high above stands the giant Swamp Gums, over 250 feet (80 metres) tall. This is a series of short, spectacular walks amongst the cool and quiet rainforest, eucalypts, streams and local wildlife.
Pandani Grove Trail
Further up into the National Park you’ll join the Pandani Grove Trail to hike around the alpine Lake Dobson. Soak up the wilderness and surrounding mountain air in this lesser visited region of the park. Lake Dobson is often covered in a layer of ice and surrounded with snow in the winter months – just gorgeous! The vegetation dates back to Gondwanaland days giving this area an enchanting and ancient feel.
Bonorong Wildlife Park
Tasmania’s largest 24/7 wildlife rescue service, Bonorong is not a zoo, their aim is to get animals back into the wild. Every single animal has a story to tell. At Bonorong, you’ll meet animals extinct every except on the island refuge of Tassie. Tassie Devils are close up; wallabies are freely hopping around the park and many more of your Aussie favorites are easily discovered here.
To top off this very Tasmanian day you’ll head to the summit of Mt. Wellington (4169ft), Hobart’s iconic backdrop. The views from the top are breathtaking and the vista is expansive. This is a fantastic way to wrap up a day exploring many of Tassie’s most unique and noteworthy experiences, rainforests, waterfalls, wines, wildlife and fabulous scenery.
