Tales from Tasmania
Just after Christmas, some of our members jetted off to explore the vast plants and wildlife of Tasmania.
The tour began in Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania.
The view of Hobart from the top of Mount Wellington.
After Hobart, it was onto Mount Field National Park - Tasmania’s oldest national park (along with Freycinet).

Near Strahan (a small town on the west coast), the group found Eucryphia lucida and Blandfordia punicea.

Cradle Mountain National Park was next on the agenda. Our lucky travellers were treated to a wonderful view of a mother and baby pademelon (small wallaby) from the hotel window!
We’ll keep you posted with further updates.
