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.

What a wonderful day. Hiking in a forest of tall trees with beautiful water falls and a knowledgeable guide, what could be better. The wildlife park is where you are able to see and interact with all the local critters. The advantages of a small tour group are you can ask questions and hear the guide's descriptions.

Our first stop was in a quaint town to purchase lunch. Our driver had a cooler and we were able to store our lunches for later that day. The hike to the falls was beautiful-lush greenery and huge trees. The first falls was pretty and we saw it from its base. There was a 230 step climb to the second waterfall. Several in our group who were unable to finish the climb. After the park, we stopped in a lovely picnic area and had lunch. Then it was off to Bonorong. This was our third wildlife park to visit in Australia and was by far our favorite. Kangaroos were in abundance through the park and very tame. The rest of the animals were interesting and the workers there seemed caring and compassionate and were eager for folks to ask them questions. They tried to make things as interactive as possible - like letting us get up close to a sleeping koala for pictures. There was beautiful scenery throughout the trip and our guide was informative and entertaining.
Really enjoyed seeing sights and animals that just are not available any where else.

Guaranteed a wonderful experience. While seeing and feeding the animals was part of my bucket list and hubby was thrilled for all the picture opportunities, it was the guide Daniel Rose that made the entire day phenomenal. A brilliant and kind man adapt at story telling of the wonderful history. Make sure to dress in layers and bring lots of ways to take photos. Give yourself a few extra minutes to find the small bus and your set for a great time that is well worth the money.

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!
