Travel through the lush, fertile Derwent Valley past cherry orchards, hop fields and wineries and on to Mt. Field - the oldest National Park in Australia with a Visitors and Interpretive Centre and options for morning tea or snack.

We return to Hobart via the other side of the Derwent River and its beautiful vistas and verdant fields and farms.

There were 5 of us on our tour and we all had a great time. Rosie is a perfect balance of knowledge and good personality as a guide. She had extra umbrellas, jackets and gave us enough space to experience the outings without us getting lost. She also was able to configure the tour so we could spend more or less time at the places we wanted to do so. Highly recommend Rosie as a guide!
