Tasmania I Drive - South West Wilderness Day Tour to Lake Pedder and Gordon Dam

The creepy crawly short walk at start of Scotts Peak Road.
Your tour starts with a scenic drive through the apple orchards and berry farms of historic New Norfolk and the Hop Fields at Busy Park. We stop off at either Possum Creek Art Gallery and Café, at Westerway, or Mount Field Visitor Centre for morning tea. Here we will pick up lunch to take away with us for a picnic along the journey or if the cafe is open at Lake Pedder we can enjoy lunch there. (to be discussed on the day) We then will make our way out to Gordon Dam driving through picturesque roads in view of often snow-capped mountains in the background during the winter months. On your way, you will experience some of the highlights of where parts of "The Hunter" was filmed. You will have the opportunity of taking short walks along the way and the pinnacle of the trip, so to speak, a walk on Gordon Dam (if you have the head for heights). We will call into Mount Field National Park where you can see the beautiful Russell Falls and some giant Swamp Gums and ferns that thrive in this ancient rainforest. We will then make our way back to Hobart.
