Ben Lomond, Tasmanian wildlife, campfire dining, platypus & Tassie wines
Day 1 – Ben Lomond & Quoll Patrol
Start the day with a visit to Ben Lomond National Park, an awesome mountain of dolerite columns and scree slopes featuring spectacular views and a magnificent array of alpine vegetation. After a picnic lunch we travel to Evercreech Forest Reserve to visit the “White Knights”, the world’s tallest white gum trees and walk amongst ancient tree ferns before culminating with a gourmet campfire and somewhat bush tucker dinner and wildlife spotting on private acreage. Sit by the campfire and enjoy a Tassie beer or wine and experience one of nature’s best after-dark wildlife shows on offer. (Evercreech visit is seasonal)
Overnight – Beulah Heritage B&B in Scottsdale
Dinner – On tour
Day 2 – Platypus Viewing and Tamar Valley Vineyards
After a Beulah Heritage country-style breakfast we travel a short distance to the outskirts of Scottsdale to view the unique and fascinating platypus. Leaving the platypus, we continue to the Tamar Valley where we visit a variety of vineyards. Jansz Tasmania boasts the best bubbles in Tasmania and experience the rustic charm of Delamere Vineyard. Crossing the picturesque Tamar River we chase the reds and visit Holm Oak Vineyard and feed Pinot Pig an apple. Moving down the Tamar River we visit Tamar Ridge at Rosevears Estate before lunch at the Velo Vineyard Timbre Kitchen Restaurant.
End of service is at Launceston 5.00 pm. Post tour accommodation and dinner are for own arrangements.
