As you wind your way along the Derwent River, you pass vineyards offering cellar door tastings and the historic Salmon Ponds and fly-fishing museum near New Norfolk.
Beyond this gateway, one of Tasmania’s most visited regions is lovely Mount Field National Park.
Highlights of Mount Field National Park
Highlights include walking through man-ferns and wet eucalypt forest to the multi-tiered Russell Falls and visiting the secluded Styx Valley, where the world’s tallest hardwood trees grow in the ‘Valley of Giants’.
In this region you also have a higher chance of seeing platypus than anywhere in Australia and can see most of the state’s native species in wildlife sanctuaries.
