Fantastic way to see Tasmania!!
This was honestly one of the best day tours I’ve ever done! The sites were plentiful and beautiful, and our guide was super friendly and extremely accommodating! (We were travelling with a little one and needed a few concessions along the way.) I’d highly recommend this tour as a great way to see Tasmania, especially if you’re short on time.

Day Tour in Mt. Field, Mt. Wellington, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Richmond
What a gorgeous place and this tour gave us nature and animals all in one. The Tall Trees and waterfall walk was simply stunning and a great start to the tour. The wildlife sanctuary was fantastic-we got to feed a kangaroo! Richmond is a beautiful town and the views on Mt Wellington were breathtaking. We loved every minute and Jarrod was a fantastic, informative guide.

Day Tour in Mt. Field, Mt. Wellington, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Richmond
Jarrod, the tour guide/driver was AMAZING! Unfortunately, our cruise didn’t arrive in time for us to start the tour to visit Mt Field, but we met up with them at Bonorong wildlife sanctuary, and continued on to visit Richmond (beautiful!) and Mt Wellington. As there was a fair amount of fog at the top, Jarrod then went out of his way to find a lookout spot to make sure that we saw a beautiful view of Hobart harbour! Fabulous tour!!

I really enjoyed taking in Richmond Jail. Easy access as right next to the coach park. Life was raw then. Loved also being interactive with the Kangaroos and the Devils are to die for. Other animals too in this care centre.

Day Tour in Mt. Field, Mt. Wellington, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary and Richmond
The entire day was wonderful! Mt. Wellington was frigid and windy but worth it! Our guide was smart enough to re-organize the sequence of the day to try to avoid afternoon rain and get us to all our stops seamlessly. The rains did come and we got a bit soggy, but still experienced all that was offered! Had a great time and would highly recommend!

A great day out exploring Hobart and surrounds. The bushwalk to the falls was lovely, Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary was fantastic and we enjoyed a lovely stop in Richmond. The views from My Wellington were spectacular. Jarrod was a fantastic guide - very friendly and with lots of great tips for how to make the most of our time at each location.
