Join one of our favourite day trips as you journey north west of Hobart and into the wilderness, feed some giant fish and experience Tasmania’s oldest national park.
You will ascend 1272 metres by road to the summit of kunanyi/Mt Wellington. Once at the summit we enjoy this alpine environment and its spectacular views of Southern Tasmania. Then it’s your choice of an easier walk along the summit or for the more difficult Organ Pipes walk.
After lunch along Hobart’s waterfront we pass through the delightful Derwent Valley on our way to Mt Field National Park. Explore the wilderness wonderland with stunning walks through enormous fern forests, some of the world’s tallest trees and the beautiful Russell Falls.
What you need to bring: Comfortable walking shoes, water bottle, sunscreen, hat and lunch (you will make a stop to purchase lunch if needed)
