Derwent Valley road trip (Day 4 of Tassie trip)

Last day of our trip in Hobart!  For today’s agenda we wanted to make the most of our car rental and looked for a one day road trip.

There are many suggested day drives available here http://www.tasmania.com/Day_Drives_in_Tasmania__234.html .. but the one that we chose was the Derwent Valley drive.

I must say so far in my travels around Australia, Tasmania has had the most scenic driving routes I’ve seen.  Both this and the Heritage Highway drive we did boasted some wonderful landscape scenery of the countryside.. Vibrant green fields and hills everywhere that I just had to stop by the side of the road in order to capture what I saw..

After 90 minutes, we got to our destination: Mt Field National park (http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/?base=3589).. and just like that, from the rural countryside we were transported into this rainforest wonderland..

There are different walking tracks available to get to various scenic lookouts..

There’s Russell Falls..

Horseshoe falls..

And the Tall Trees walk

Sadly after exploring the park, it was time to end our vacation.. We drove back to the airport for our flight back to Melbourne.

But before completely leaving this lovely state, just wanna show you the view I got from the airplane

History, adventure, nature.. We got a taste of all of these in the brief time we’ve spent in Tasmania.. This is one place I definitely want to go back to and explore further 😀
