Travel by motorcoach and take in the scenic countryside of the fertile Huon Valley, dotted with farms and bordered by hills and mountains. Orchards and vineyards abound and the journey alongside the picturesque Huon River is quite breathtaking, with reflections of the yachts and hills in the water.

At a local Huon Valley Café, sit down to a refreshing morning tea or coffee served with sandwiches, miniature quiche, homemade cakes and biscuits, as well as fresh fruit.

Next, venture deep into forested country to the Tahune Forest. Here you will experience the Tahune Air Walk -- a stroll in the treetop canopy, up to 120 feet above the forest floor, deep in the heart of the Tahune Forest Reserve. Observe what a wet eucalyptus forest looks and smells like and discover how truly glorious nature can be from a new perspective.

There will be time for you to purchase lunch (at your own expense) at the visitor center while you take in the magnificent scenery of this area.

The return route passes along the charming Derwent River before reaching the suburbs of Hobart and the pier.

Notes: Wear sunscreen, a hat and comfortable walking shoes. The Tahune Air Walk is 147 feet above ground level; not suitable for guests who suffer from vertigo. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair.
