Tasmania’s Ben Lomond, wildlife, 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 Tasmania 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 travelling to the Tyne Valley to enjoy campfire dining ,and somewhat bush tucker dinner. Your dinner companions this evening will be the local and very sociable forester kangaroos who stop by for a visit. Sit by the crackling campfire with a Tassie beer or wine in hand and experience one of nature’s best after-dark wildlife spectacles going around. (Evercreech visit is seasonal)
Overnight – Beulah Heritage B&B in Scottsdale

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 Sparkling Pipers and Tamar Valley regions 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 or Moore Hills vineyard.
