If you are looking for an unforgettable nature experience when in Tasmania, do not go past this day tour that reveals to you an abundance of wildlife viewing and the antics of the eastern quoll in its most natural habitat. The small size of this private tour allows you to get a real feel for an exceptional example of Australian native wildlife.
You will be met by your guide at your accommodation at 12:00pm (the time may vary depending on seasonality to ensure the best time for viewing) and you’ll be taken to your initial stop visiting Ben Lomond National Park. This mountain is made up of dolerite columns, scree slopes and is home to eight out of the twenty highest peaks in Tasmania. Playing an invaluable role in regional wildlife conservation, this is also the highest drivable peak in Tasmania so you are guaranteed uninterrupted breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape.
Forester kangaroos keep safe (and curious) company when you indulge in Tasmanian beverages and dine on your 4-course dinner. This dinner includes a delectable platter of Tasmanian cheeses complete with smoked salmon and fruits, before moving on to wallaby mountain burgers and native spiced salmon.
Then let the show begin as the best “after dark” spectacles unfold. Whilst sitting in the comfort of your campfire, the wildlife will start to appear at dusk to graze. Keep an eye out for brush-tail possums, kangaroos, eastern quolls, wombats and Tasmanian pademelon wallabies to name a few. On occasion platypus, bandicoots and owls can also be viewed. Don’t forget your camera, as there are some brilliant photo opportunities to take advantage of here!
Your tour will conclude upon arrival back to your accommodation between 9:00pm – 10:00pm.
