Mt Wellington, Mt Field, Bonorong & Richmond Day Trip
- Small group
- Transportation included
- Duration: 9 hours
We only had a day in Tasmania and couldn’t be happier to have taken this day trip. We visited big tree country, taking a short hike through the trees with wildlife (pademelons, birds, a platypus) and waterfalls. We hand fed kangaroos, took pictures with a koala and a wombat, and watched a Tassie devil feeding at Bonorong. Bonorong is amazing! Lunch was at the quaint town of Richmond which had gin/whiskey tastings, a candy shop, scallop pie, and a beautiful park near the water with the oldest active bridge in Australia. The day ended on Mt Wellington with a gorgeous view of Hobart and Tassie. We loved learning so much about Tassie while experiencing it. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
This was a neat little day trip and it was exactly what I was after given my short stay in Hobart. Jarrod was super friendly and informative and was always happy to have a chat and answer questions. The small group made the experience personalised and tailored to each person, which was a nice touch. There was plenty of time at each location, so I didn't feel rushed and got to really kick back and really explore Richmond, which was perfect. Would definitely recommend this trip if you aren't in Hobart for long and/or if it's your first time to Hobart.
Jarrod was very accommodating, knowledge and genuinely cared about giving us the best experience possible. His sincere interest in history and culture created a personal touch to the tour. I feel I saw a lot and learnt a lot about Tasmania. It is a good length and doesn’t feel too packed. There was a good balance of guided activities and own exploration. I would highly recommend this tour to lone travellers in those travelling in groups.
We had a great day with Jarrod as our guide. He knows so much about the history, geography, wildlife, farming practices and people of Tasmania. He is thoughtful; for example, ensuring that we were able to walk down to the falls instead of climbing up. He helped us discover great Tasmanian scallop pie! We highly recommend this tour!
Jarrod was an excellent guide. The trip allowed enough time at each location to experience that site properly before moving on. The commentary provided along the journey was educational and interesting.
