Experience nature within a capital city with a private guide
Join me on a relaxed exploration of Hobart's local parks and nature reserves, and meet some of our unique native animals at the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary. This one-day tour includes a visit to the summit of Mt Wellington, a short walk to Silver Falls in the mountainside suburb of Fern Tree, and a wander through the Waterworks Reserve, where you can see many of our native birds. After lunch at the beautiful Cascade Brewery we head to Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary to get up close and personal with wallabies, wombats and the wonderful Tasmanian devil.
This tour begins with a drive to the summit of Mt Wellington to admire the spectacular alpine scenery and magnificent views of the city and wilderness areas. We then travel to the mountain suburb of Fern Tree, where we can walk to the beautiful Silver Falls. We continue by car to the Waterworks Reserve, where we can spend time birdwatching or exploring the history of this fascinating natural beauty spot. After lunch at the magnificent Cascade Brewery we will spend the afternoon enjoying the company of some of Tasmania's friendliest native animals at Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, before heading back to Hobart.

There are not enough stars in the universe to convey how great our tour with Ruth was! She was beyond exceptional in every way! Knowledgeable on history, flora, fauna, fun facts, areas, cheese...I mean you name it, she rocked it!! We could not have been happier with our amazing experience! Saw over 35 different species of animals, birds, mammals, etc in our full and epic day with Ruth! What a gem she is and so so so very friendly and accommodating on top of everything else! We are so so grateful!!!
