Mt. Field & Bonorong Wildlife Park Adventure
A short drive to Mt. Field National Park and your guided adventure begins. Walking through the park, you'll encounter the famous Russell Falls before seeing the Tall Trees and Horseshoe Falls. On return, the Swamp Gums will tower above you majestically before visiting the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary to see the native wildlife.
Established in 1856, Australia's island state of Tasmania is promoted as a natural state with 45% of its area dedicated to nature reserves, parks and World Heritage Sites. This stunning guided tour begins once your trusty guide drives the 60 picturesque minutes to Mt. Field National Park, Tasmania's oldest National Park. It is absolutely beautiful.
You'll explore two walking paths within the 64 square miles of rainforest and alpine landscape composing the park. First, you'll encounter the famous Russell Falls, which features a distinct, three tiered drop.
And while often overlooked and underappreciated, the park is home to an amazingly diverse realm of fungi, which helps to regulate and recycle the ecosystem. While learning about the park's inhabitants, you'll reach the wonderful Horseshoe Falls, which are appropriately name for their resemblance, and the Tall Trees Track, which are a bevy of eucalyptus trees in the Swamp Gum area.
Thereafter, you'll visit the Bonorong Wildlife Park, which is the sustainable habitat for many rescued Tasmanian devils, kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and more. This Tasmania tour will not disappoint. Reserve this memory making adventure today.

While the cruise ship offered a similar cruise, this smaller group experience was very much to my liking. It required a fair amount of walking with some stair climbing, but the views of the Falls and trees were with it. I would recommend it!
Our guide was very knowledgable. Hiking through the woods we saw wallaby and waterfalls. The Bonorong Park was a wonderful experience to interact with kangaroos. They are doing such good work there to help the animals.

Loved it. Our guide was great and small group really makes a difference. My only criticism is that we really didn't get a small group tour of the preserve. It was very crowded with a big bus and we just hit left to attach ourselves to them or go on our own. The hike was wonderful the knowledge of our guide about the local area was very informative b

What a delight to hike the forests with a knowledgeable guide. The falls where bountiful, the trees expansive, and the rest stop in little town to buy our picnic lunch memorable. The wildlife park was essential to be able to see the local critters we've so long heard about. The small tour group that just filled the van was a bonus too. No lines to wait in and you could hear the guide's descriptions and ask questions.

The short hiking into the tall trees and waterfalls of Mt Field were refreshing to the senses and offered meaningful exercise after being on a cruise ship! The wildlife visit was also interactive with kangaroos eating right out of your hands!
