This is a forest walk with a difference. Walking largely off track you will experience the forest as it really is, rather than as it has been adapted by human intervention. Our guides are ecologists and experienced interpreters and will lead you on a journey of discovery from the ancient forests of the super continent of Gondwana to the more recent fire adapted eucalypts. The Great Western Tiers contains a wide variety of forest communities. It is the meeting point between the wet rainforest communities of the west coast, the dry forest of the east and Tasmania’s alpine plant communities. The opportunity for forest interpretation with this variety of forest in such close proximity is unparalleled elsewhere in Tasmania. The forests and their surrounds are also home to almost all of Tasmania’s bird and marsupial mammal species. Our guides will adopt an easy pace, which may vary with each group. We ask all our clients for pre trip information so we can assess clients for any special needs before departure. Good walking shoes and reasonable fitness will make this walk more enjoyable. Lunch is included.
