After a picnic lunch we travel via the Roses Tier for a forest discovery drive en route to the Tyne Valley for a campfire dinner with the forester kangaroos.

After a Beulah Heritage country style breakfast we travel a short distance to the outskirts of Scottsdale to view the unique and fascinating platypus. Leaving the platypus, we continue to the Tamar Valley where we visit a variety of vineyards. Jansz Tasmania boasts the best bubbles in Tasmania and experience the rustic charm of Delamere Vineyard. Crossing the picturesque Tamar River we chase the reds and visit Holm Oak or Moores Hill for wine or whisky.
