Know More about this tour

Mt. Field National Park offers a variety of walks in Tasmanias oldest National Park. Most famous for Russell Falls & the Tall Trees we explore the various walks and regions of this diverse area which is only a 1.5 hr drive from Hobart.

Russell Falls is easily Tasmanias most recognisable waterfall with its 3-tiered drop. It is an easy and enjoyable walk along a beautiful track that takes us to this photogenic waterfall and beyond to Horseshoe Falls. We also make our way along the Tall Trees Track where high above us stand the giant Swamp Gums 80 metres tall. This is a series of short, spectacular walks amongst the cool and quiet rainforest, eucalypts, streams and local wildlife.

Further up into the National Park we join the Pandani Grove Trail which takes us 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 to Gondwanaland days giving this area an enchanting and ancient feel.

We enjoy a lunch break in one of the numerous beautiful settings at Mt. Field before continuing onwards for the day.

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.

To top off this very Tasmanian day we head to the summit of Kunyani/Mt. Wellington (1271m) Hobarts 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 Tassies most unique and noteworthy experiences, rainforests, waterfalls, wildlife and fabulous scenery.

We return you to your Hobart CBD hotel around 5.00 5.30pm.

    We were under the impression we going on a short 30 minute walk through mt.field, we then hiked for 3 hours through the forest. We then had a quick pit stop at bonorong, where we were rushed to see the animals with only 35-45minutes there. The tour needs a better description of what actually occurs as this was unexpected. The tour guide made us pay $1 for masks and insisted we wore masks throughout the bus trip. The itinerary needs updating.

    An enjoyable trip with David as our guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable and experience.. Lovely walks in Mount Field. Russell Falls was beautiful. We didn't get to Lake Dobson. Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary was interesting and you get to see cute wombats, Tasmanian devils and feed kangaroos. It was misty at the summit of Mount Wellington and we missed the panoramic view of Hobart. But we did stop at a lower level for photos.

    Russell Falls areso beautiful.So is the view from Mt Wellington. Trevor was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful.A great day out.

    3 short walks with excellent friendly guide explaining different forest vegetation as you travel up Mt Fielding.Take your warm gear for Mt Wellington- do not have to carry on the walks. Wild life park also much better than expected. Great to have someone else do the driving.

    David was so great, he knew so much about the wildlife and plant life and was accomodating to the group. His stories were also super funny! Thank you for an awesome and genuine day.

    All about this tour seems carefully planned for a small group to enjoy the magnificent views along the way, the Mt Field flora and fauna, the care for our wildlife at Bonorong Park and the views from Mt Wellington. Our guide Nick is the best. He taught us so much about the history of the peoples who lived and worked in these areas and their legacies. Mt Wellington was also a highlight to add up to an amazing experience. Many thanks Nick!

    This trip was cancelled due to cancellations to the covid lockdown in nsw and Victoria, it looks like a fab trip and will hopefully get to do it next time, I was offered this trip for another day but was already booked on different day trips

    This was a great day out visiting some must-see sites. Our tour guide, Jeremy, was very knowledgeable and has so much passion for the history and flora of Mt Field. All his knowledge made the visit to Mt Field 10x better than it would have been if we chose to visit by ourselves. The visit to Bonorong was educational, and we were fortunate to have a beautiful and clear day at the top of Mt Wellington, for a view that shouldn't be missed. Highly recommend this tour.

    3/5 would probably suggest a pretty average experience but I would have actually given it a lot higher if they had gone through with the Mt Wellington section of the tour that we paid for. Through no fault of their own the roads were closed and had been for days before our tour but we were only informed of it while we were on the bus. We do feel Tours Tasmania misrepresented this and could have called/emailed ahead and given us the option to pull out or reduced fee. Mt Nelson was a poor substitute at best. That being said, our guide David was exceptional and really saved the tour for us. He was friendly, knowledgeable and loved to talk about everything in his city. We thoroughly enjoyed his company and learning from him. Overall, we feel the company did a bit of a bait and switch on us but David did manage to salvage the day to an extent. I'd recommend checking all locations are available before registering a tour with these guys.
