An early start from Hobart sees us heading deep into the wild west coast of Tasmania. After passing through the town of New Norfolk, we explore Mount Field National Park by walking amongst some of the tallest trees on the planet, standing beneath the beautiful Russel Falls, and searching for platypus. Our drive passes though the Tasmania Wilderness World Heritage Area with a stop in at Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. We’ll then explore the eerie historical mining town of Queenstown before arriving at our destination, not far from Cradle Mountain, ready to explore tomorrow.
