From Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife, “The Ben Lomond National Park is invaluable for the conservation of the flora communities and species diversity of Tasmania’s alpine areas. The area consists of an outstanding variety of glacial and periglacial features which are considered of national significance”. On leaving Ben Lomond we travel via the Roses Tier forests to the Tyne Valley for a campfire dinner with the forester 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.
