We travel north west of Hobart and follow the Derwent, through New Norfolk and Westerway, then alongside the Tyenna River to Mt Field National Park. The journey takes you through the birthplace of Australian hops where oast houses of the yesteryear form part of the stunning landscapes that Tasmania is renowned for.

Arriving at Mt Field National Park we make our way to Lake Dobson. The environment changes from tall forests to alpine moorland and a glacial landscape reminiscent of the Gondwana era – contrary to what you may expect, the diversity of plants actually increases with altitude! Enjoy a leisurely walk around the lake through ‘Pandani Grove’ – a habitat for endemic flora, native birds and wildlife, maybe even a platypus will grace us with its presence. Your photographic inspiration is sure to be awakened by the stunningly rugged alpine scenery.

You’ll be enchanted by the easy walk through a forest of ferns and fungi to the magnificent 3-tiered Russell Falls – watch out for wallabies and pademelons too, or even a platypus in the creek!  Further along the trail we pause at another spectacular waterfall, Horseshoe Falls, then, into the Tall Trees Forest where you stand in awe beneath towering eucalypts – the tallest flowering plant and one of the tallest trees in the world, known as swamp gum or mountain ash.
