PREMIUM Hartz Mountains & Tahune Airwalk - photo-oriented private day tour (all-inclusive) - PhotographyTours.com.au

This tour takes our guests on a journey into the picturesque Huon Valley, travelling through the historic towns Huonville, Franklin and Geeveston. In these southern forests, there’s a trove of natural treasures to explore.

The Hartz Mountains features an ancient landscape shaped by glaciers, jagged dolerite mountain peaks and a diverse natural environment of forest and heathland. We’ll wander along a nature trail through alpine moorland to arrive at Osborne Lake – a glacial lake lined with endemic King Billy Pines. There’s plenty of time to spend focusing on a diversity of photographic subjects or simply to soak up the tranquillity, before retracing our steps back through the moorland for another view of the landscape.

In the Tahune forest we ascend into the forest canopy on the Tahune Airwalk. This elevated walkway takes us to the treetops of blackwood, myrtle, sassafras and other Tasmanian native trees; a view from above that’s not easily attained otherwise. From the cantilevered lookout the views are spectacular, of the rivers below and the surrounding mountains. 

Back at ground level, explore a forest of ancient Huon Pines or take a longer walk to cross the Huon River on a swinging bridge. 

After experiencing the magnificence of the southern forests, we return to Hobart and, if time permits, travel via Cygnet and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel for a scenic drive back to Hobart
