The Experience – Private Charter Tour – 8-10 hours
Internationally reviewed as one of Australia’s most exceptional nature experiences and remarkable Tasmanian wildlife viewing tours – discover the wilderness, wildlife and tastes of Tasmania on this afternoon/evening tour. Enjoy the ambience of superb campfire dinner followed by sensational wildlife viewing which focuses on the antics of the eastern quoll in its natural habitat. Dine with the forester kangaroos, see brush-tail possums, eastern quolls and Tasmanian pademelons while wombats and Bennett’s wallaby graze close by. For the best Tasmanian wildlife viewing experience we suggest to package the Quoll Patrol with our Canopy Capers tour.
Visit Ben Lomond National Park, this spectacular plateau is the largest alpine plateau in Tasmania and is a mountain environment with extensive and dramatic dolerite cliffs and columns. Its scree slopes, swirling mists and frost-stunted forests are reminiscent of a Tolkien landscape. In departing Launceston or Scottsdale, we travel diverse landscapes before arriving at the Base of Ben Lomond. In making the climb we drive up Jacobs Ladder, a series of hairpin bends to marvel at the breath-taking view from the platform at the top. The Ben Lomond plateau has 8 of the 20 highest peaks in Tasmania and it has the highest drivable point in Tasmania where Bennett’s wallaby and wombats may be seen in daylight hours.
Campfire Dinner with the Kangaroos
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
Tasmanian wildlife viewing at its best – you will be delighted and enchanted while sitting by the campfire as the wildlife appear at dusk. Forester kangaroos, eastern quolls, Tasmanian pademelon wallabies and brush-tail possums feed near the campfire while Bennett’s wallabies & wombats graze close by. At times, platypus, tawny frogmouths, bandicoots and owls can also be viewed. Outstanding wildlife photography opportunities on offer. Return to Scottsdale or Launceston between 7.30 and 10.30 pm (seasonal)
