Full Tour details
Departing Launceston we travel East towards Scottsdale, taking a short break at the Sidling to look over the beautiful lush countryside. Our next stop is at Legerwood where we take in the incredible tree art, dedicated to the WW1 Soldiers of the Dorset area which has all been hand carved with chainsaws.
We head towards Ringarooma and Mount Victoria Reserve on our way to Ralph Falls, where you are able to take in the stunning Ringarooma Valley and roadside waterfalls. We travel through a section of road high up along Mount Victoria Road, sections of which are of a dry wall construction, hand built in the 1920’s.
We then arrive at Ralph Falls. It’s a short 30 min walk through mysterious Myrtle rainforests, where you will see Fungi of many different varieties, shapes and colours, moss and lichen covered trees, and if you keep an eye out you may see a Wombat or two, it’s almost like entering a different world. The track brings you to Norms Lookout where you see Ralph Falls in all its glory, etched into the craggy cliffs, the streaming ribbon of Ralph Falls plunges 100 metres into a fern filled chasm.
Travelling through the Tasmanian Plantation timber reserves which are grown throughout the Mount Victoria Reserve, we cross the Inlet Bridge and on to St Columba Falls. It’s a 30 min return walk to the falls through fern filled gullys - we have sited quolls here in previous visits, so keep your eyes out, but don’t approach them.
Returning to the vehicle we travel towards Pyengana, through beautiful farm land. You will also see the famous Pub in the Paddock, before arriving at the Pyengana Cheese Factory where we stop for a short break to have lunch. Pyengana produces some of the best local cheeses around - free cheese tastings are available, and also an array of local produce for purchase.
A light lunch is included in your Tour package (Tasmanian Gourmet Platter, includes a variety of cheeses, pickles, meats, salmon, nuts fruit, crackers and sourdough, or items from the menu) Coffee, Tea or cold non-alcoholic drink.
