Tasmania is a dramatically beautiful island combining attributes of both Australia and New Zealand, yet with its own very distinctive character, landscapes and attractions. Tasmania, through a combination of isolation, and its rugged mountainous terrain, is still home to a vast array of Australian mammals, many of which are now hard to see on the mainland. Marsupials such as the archetypal Tasmanian Devil, Wombats, Kangaroos, Wallabies, Quolls, and Pademelons are foci on this trip; while there are excellent opportunities to view the bizarre Platypus and Echidna, and to view a wonderful array of birds such as Fairy Wrens, Cockatoos, Rosellas, Scarlet Robins, and Fairy Penguins. Our circuit around and through the island will also enable a celebration of the Tasmanian high country and its special plants.
