The beauty of nature gives the land an impressive look and visitors really enjoy the cruise. The rainforest keeps your eyes on the vegetation alongside the river as you cruise. Since weather keeps on changing, it is good to carry some warm clothes in case it becomes rainy and cold.

Tahune Forest

The forest is rich in different vegetation, which is appealing to the eye. To make the forest passable, the government has created a pathway through the thick vegetation for visitors to enjoy. If you are walking here, you should not stop until you reach the cantilever, which is the highest point with the best view of what is in the forest.

Mount Wellington

Mt Wellington (1,271 m, 4,170 ft) is an ideal place to stand to have a panoramic view of the island. Much of the city of Hobart is built on the foothills of the mountain. It is frequently snow covered, sometimes even in summer and the lower slopes are thickly forested, but criss-crossed by many walking tracks and a few fire trails. You can go up the mountain and enjoy amazing features of the land when you are on top. From Hobart, the most interesting feature of Mount Wellington is the cliff of dolerite columns – the Organ Pipes. It has spectacular views and is one of Hobart's biggest tourist destinations.
