Discover the tall forests of Tasmania and Gondwanaland at Mt Field National Park and the mighty Styx Valley. At Russell Falls you will learn the secrets of how these prehistoric forests have evolved and survived. Step through the intricate garden-like alpine habitats of the glacial Lake Dobson, home of ancient pines, spotted-tailed quolls and the worlds smallest possum, aptly named the “little” pygmy possum.
Then into the Styx Valley; gaze up into the canopies of the tallest flowering trees to have ever grown on earth. Find out what all the fuss has been about with regard to the exploitation and protection of these great forests and the wilderness that they dominate. Battle after battle, the war rages on!
