Nature, Art and Culinary Delights

Join us on this unforgettable tour where we explore two of Tasmania's most iconic locations, combining the natural beauty of Mt Field National Park with its giant eucalyptus trees, ancient rainforest and stunning waterfalls, to the quirky and interactive art scene at MONA Museum, the largest privately owned museum in the Southern Hemisphere. If MONA isn't for you, we offer a shuttle service from Mount Field back to Hobart excluding MONA within this tour.

Drive through the picturesque Derwent Valley region before reaching Mount Field National Park. Witness the most remarkable landscapes and step inside a part of the Tasmanian World Heritage Area. Being one of Australia's oldest and most diverse national parks, with some of the tallest flowering trees in the world, Mount Field is full of natural wonders, abundant wildlife and ecological richness that cannot be missed while visiting Tasmania.

Walk through the rainforest and admire the tall trees as you head to the iconic Russell Falls and Horseshoe Falls where cascading waterfalls await. Along the way, you may also spot native wildlife such as wallabies, echidnas, the unique platypus and various rare bird species that inhabit this environment.

In the afternoon consider exploring some options of locally-grown produce, along with tastings both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Visit the Westerway Raspberry Farm (available November to June) to hand-pick a variety of berries, or explore the historic Salmon Ponds, the birthplace of trout in Australia, renowned for its famous pancakes. There is also the option to enjoy a tasting and grab a bite to eat at the family-owned Plenty Cider or the New Norfolk Rum Distillery. From heritage buildings to lush gardens and unique tastings, there is something for everyone.

Enjoy some free time to explore one of the world's most unique museums MONA, where you can check out the art exhibits that have been described by its owner David Walsh as a “subversive adult Disneyland” If the museum isn't for you, check out the local winery and craft brewery also on the MONA site.

For those on the shuttle service, we will make our way back to Hobart and your drop-off location. For those at MONA, the choice is yours. Book a scenic and relaxing ferry ride on the Mona Roma back to Hobart, or wait for our friendly guide to pick you up and return to Hobart.

Some of the things you can expect to see and do on this tour:

Russell and Horseshoe Falls

They are easily accessible natural wonders and a must-see within Mount Field National Park.

Flora and Fauna

Mount Field National Park is a haven for diverse wildlife, offering visitors a chance to encounter many of Tasmania's native species in their natural habitat. Here are some highlights: Wallabies, the Eastern Quoll, Yellow Wattlebird, platypus, and the echidna.

Mount Field is home to many plant species that are found nowhere else in the world, from eucalypt trees, alpine wildflowers, pandani plants and sassafras.
