Day 1 – Platypus, Birdwatching & Quoll Patrol Tours in Tasmania
As part of our birdwatching tours in Tasmania, either self-drive to Scottsdale or Pepper Bush transfer from Launceston for an early afternoon tour departure. Departing Scottsdale, we explore an array of forests and bird habitats to discover a variety of forest and woodland birds on the way via the Roses Tier forests to the Tyne Valley for a campfire dinner with the kangaroos.
The Campfire Dinner – With the forester kangaroos as your dinner companions, enjoy the ambience of campfire dining with a 3-course dinner consisting of Tasmanian tasting platter of cheeses and smoked meats followed by Bush Pattie Yummo Gumbo or Native Spice Salmon/Salad with dessert to finish. Settle back and relax with a Tassie beverage and watch the sun set and see our field of dreams come alive.
Nocturnal Wildlife Viewing – You will be delighted and enchanted while sitting by the campfire as the wildlife appear at dusk. Forester kangaroos, eastern quolls, Tasmanian pademelons and brush-tail possums feed near the campfire while Bennett’s wallabies and wombats graze close by. At times, platypus, tawny frogmouths, bandicoots, and owls can also be viewed. Return to your accommodation 8.00 – 11.00 pm (seasonal)
