Enjoy Tasmania's magnificent natural scenery as well as its unique wildlife on this 8-hour tour. The first segment commences with a ride along the shoreline of the Derwent River and through the Hopfields on the way to the village of New Norfolk, home to a wildlife park with koalas, wombats, wallabies, and kangaroos. After a visit there, the tour makes a stop at Lake Fenton and then proceeds to Mount Field National Park, one of Australia's oldest natural reserves. See Russell Falls, a three-tier waterfall surrounded by swamp gums and tall ferns, and go in search of the nocturnal platypus, which makes its home in the wild upper reaches of the Derwent River. There are plenty of opportunities to spot other wildlife before the tour heads back to the city.|
