Your Tour – Your Experience – Your Choice
From $160 to $320
Your tour starts with a drive through historic New Norfolk, passing through hop fields, apple orchards and berry farms to Mt Field National Park.
Here you can have a couple of choices of walks depending on how long you wish to walk for. Russell Falls is a short 20-minute walk there and back or I can drop you off at the top of the big tree walk (30-45 minutes) where you can see 75 metre plus hardwood eucalypts, and blackwood, sassafras and myrtle through the park. You will also have the opportunity to view both the spectacular ‘Horseshoe’ and ‘Russell Falls’ (there are quite a few steps down). We will return to either the Park’s café or The Possum Shed Café, at Westerway, for a light lunch.
Our final stop is the famous Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary where you can hand feed kangaroos – get your photo taken with a koala and learn all about the Tasmanian Devil.
