NOTE 1 - The Rodway Range, Mt Field National Park

Lost & Found

Drive in any direction from Hobart and you quickly find yourself in beautiful rural country followed by pristine wilderness. Within one and a half hours drive and a short walk you can place yourself on a pristine beach, by cascading waterfalls, under tall trees in cold climate rainforest, on towering ocean cliffs or above the snow line. If you prefer a more urban adventure, Hobart’s streets are lined with bars, cafes, eateries and galleries in a setting framed by kunanyi/Mt Wellington and the River Derwent, all within a short walk from your room. We have our favourites, let us show you.

NATURE WALK

NOTE 4.1 - Colours of Mt Field National Park

LICHEN GREEN

Just over an hour’s drive north of Hobart, through the beautiful river towns, hop fields and timber villages of New Norfolk, Glenora and Westerway lies Mount Field National Park. There are many attractions – easy walks to the three main waterfalls, the Tall Trees’ walk – a towering spectacle if ever there was – or a lunch at the visitor centre! The more adventurous can drive the extra 20 minutes up through the forest to Lake Dobson, for either a gentle circular lakeside walk or as a springboard to explore the Tarn Shelf and the Rodway Range or two Mount Field peaks.
