Your day trip from Hobart begins as you leave the city by coach, traveling northwest along the River Derwent. Pass by the suburbs of Glenorchy and Claremount, home to the Australian outpost of Cadbury chocolate, and spot native birds on the shores of the river.

As you drive through Derwent River Valley, take note of its small towns and agricultural fields, and pass by New Norfolk on your way to Mt Field National Park, one of Australia’s oldest national parks, where you can soak up the tranquil rainforest atmosphere.

Take a walk along a forest stream, and admire the tree ferns that provide a shady canopy. See Russell Falls, a tiered waterfall that’s one of the park’s most popular natural attractions. Your day trip ends with the drive back to Hobart, which takes you across Bowen Bridge for a glimpse of the Incat catamaran factory.

, Jan 2017
Tour was cancelled and I wasn't informed via email about it. So I was waiting at the pick-up spot but nobody came and as I called them, they told me they left a message on my voice-box - which wasn't installed because as a tourist, I only have a pre-paid aussie-number/card. Pretty disappointing because everyone was telling me how wonderful the Russel Falls are! Wish they would have written me an email, so I could have planned another tour for this day!

This was the highlight of my holiday to Hobart Tasmania. The tour was on time, the operator was very good and friendly and being a small bus there was 18 of us she made us feel very relaxed. The falls are easy to get to for any type of ability wheelchair , walking stick/frame etc however the falls above Russell Falls which are called Horseshoe Falls are only accessible via a steep but safe series of rock and wooden steps, but well worth the effort if you can. When you first reach Russell Falls I was lucky as they were in full flow just takes ones breath away at their sheer majesty, same for Horseshoe Falls . You get plenty of time to explore and have a lovely lunch at the café on site at the park entrance. Morning tea is provided at a salmon hatchery with lovely English style gardens with loads of exotic trees . It is a whole day tour and takes you via scenic valleys on both sides of the Derwent River. Again my luck held out as it was a most beautiful and warm day but come prepared as the weather can change in an instant. My booking with viator was flawless and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. A magic day to remember forever along with many photos. DO THIS TOUR you will never regret it.

A great day, informative, friendly driver/guide, lots to see, unhurried and not crowded. The park itself is amazing with some fabulously tall eucalypts, wildlife and a very pretty and impressive waterfall at the end of a pleasant forest walk. The trout farm we visited on the way was very interesting backed up with coffee and crepes, who could ask for more!
