Mt. Field & Bonorong Wildlife Park Adventure

A stunning day of dramatic "Wilderness, Waterfalls and Wildlife." With forest walks, up close animal experiences and magnificent views this day tour offers an opportunity to experience a snap shot of Tasmania's world-famous natural attractions We enjoy some of Tasmania's "Great Short Walks" at Mt. Field National Park, just a 90 minute drive from Hobart waterfront. You will stop along the way to meet some of our local wildlife at the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary.

Mt. Field is Tasmania's oldest National Park. It is most famous for the beautiful 3 - tiered Russell Falls. This is one of Tasmania's Great Short Walks, with an easy walking track meandering beside a quiet stream through beautiful forest. From Russell Falls you have the option to climb the stairs to Horseshoe Falls, the lesser known but equally stunning waterfall in its peaceful rain forest setting.

We drive further into the National Park where we explore another of Tasmania Great Short Walks. Towering above us are the Tall Trees as we walk the Tall Trees Track. The local swamp gums stand as high as 80 meters above us, and these Giants of the Forest are magnificent to walk among. We enjoy a lunch break in one of the numerous beautiful settings at Mt. Field before continuing onward for the day.

Our next stop is Bonorong Wildlife Park where you can wander among the local wildlife and hand feed the Wallabies. We see Tasmanian Devils, wombats and many more of our unique local animals. This is a fantastic day out exploring many of Tasmania's most unique experiences, rain forests, waterfalls, wildlife and fabulous scenery.

Wonderful Experience
March 02, 2020
Because of sea conditions our stop was cut short by three hours. We were worried that we wouldn't be able to go on this scheduled 7 hour excursion. Our tour guide though made this possible and we were able to see BEAUTIFUL beyond words or photos, Mt. Field. It was breath taking! We also very much enjoyed Bonorong Wildlife Park. It was so fun getting up close with the kangaroos. This is a great tour for anyone that is able to walk easily over bumpy terrain. My 75 year old mother had no issues. Everyone in our group was thrilled with the tour.

Worth the time & money

Not a serious hike, more of a walk ending in some steps. If you walk around the block st home and live in a house with stairs you’ve got this. Trees rivaling redwoods were astounding. Photo tip.. pano starting from top down for best light effects. The animal experience was the best of our trip. Unforgettable.

Great Scenic and Wildlife Experience
January 10, 2020
We very much enjoyed the scenic beauty of Mt. Field National Park and the opportunity to hike around a portion of it and experience it up close. Our guide was very knowledgeable and the information was relayed in an informative and entertaining manner. The visit to Bonorong refuge allowed us to observe a wide variety of native wildlife in a relatively short time, which wouldn't have been possible otherwise.

This was truly an adventure.

This was truly an adventure. The rainforest reminded me of Jurassic Park and we were able to work all the way around on a nice path looking at beautiful waterfalls in huge foliage with gigantic trees. Wildlife park was cold and windy but it made up for it when the sun came up and I was able to feed and pet the kangaroos..A coffee shop I do very well up there when one needs to rest and get warmed up.

Well Worth It
December 24, 2019
This tour is very well organized. The information given is clear and precise. The pick-up is only a short walk from the cruise pier. The small bus used was suitable for the group and in good condition. Our driver Andrew was informative and engaging. The drive to Mt Field showed how beautiful Tasmania is. The Tall Trees walk there is on a very well maintained trail. Although we experienced rain showers, the footing was good for the downhill walk. I am 75 and experienced no difficulty. Bonorong was fun. The kangaroos are entertaining and friendly. It was great to tick off the bucket list Tasmanian Devils. Buy a scallop pie at the coffee/lunch stop. It's a Tasmanian delicacy. .

Mt Field/Bonorong
December 04, 2019
This was a great excursion (except for the rain and unseasonably cold weather). Our tour guide, Dan was exceptional - I asked a question he couldn't answer but before we boarded the bus at our next stop, he had already found the answer to my question. He was very informative. This could have been a miserable tour with the weather we had, but Dan made all the difference. Rain gear was provided for those of us who did not have it (like me, even though it was suggested in the tour description). I would definitely recommend this tour!
