Things to do:
Mt Field National Park is one of Tasmania's most loved national parks. The park has a wide variety of scenic features and wildlife and offers a great range of facilities for day visitors. Few other national parks in Australia offer such a diversity in vegetation, ranging from tall swamp gum forests and massive tree ferns at the base of the mountain, through rainforest along the Lake Dobson Road, to alpine vegetation at the higher elevations.
Mount Mawson is located within the Mount Field National Park and about 1½ hour’s drive from Hobart in southern Tasmania. The ski areas are at an altitude of about 1250m and the area usually gets fairly consistent snow falls during winter resulting in sufficient cover for downhill skiing from mid-July to mid-September.
Mount Mawson is a small club field operated by the Southern Tasmania Ski Association (STSA). The area is open to the general public for downhill skiing.
Zoodoo has Tasmania's largest range of exotic animals including a variety of monkey species, tigers, white Lions and many more. Lion Cub feeding and keeper's tours run daily at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.
Port Arthur is a small town and former convict settlement on the Tasman Peninsula, in Tasmania, Australia. Port Arthur is one of Australia's most significant heritage areas and an open-air museum.
