A day of discovery and delight, this tour will share with you the secrets of Tasmania’s world-renowned salmon industry as well as taking you deep into one of its oldest national parks.
First stop is the Salmon Ponds Heritage Hatchery and Gardens where you’re sure to learn a thing or two during an fascinating guided tour. The oldest trout hatchery in the Southern Hemisphere, this is where the very first trout were raised back in 1864. In fact, they were the base stock for many of the trout that can be found swimming in streams and lakes all across Australia and New Zealand today! Take a guided walk around the beautiful grounds and gardens, visit the hatchery and its museum and hand feed hatchlings in the fish ponds.
Next you will visit Mt. Field National Park, one of Tasmania’s oldest national parks. A World Heritage Site, here you can walk amongst the world’s tallest hardwood trees and visit the spectacular Russell Falls. Take the time to breathe in the pristine forest air and marvel at the scale of the natural beauty before you.
