We spent a day with Graham and Carol. We had a walk in the Mount Field National Park, and then they showed us the wildlife in Australia. It was really amazing! We definitely come back to Tasmania and join their tour again! :)

Graham is an excellent host. My two girls were thrilled to see local wildlife and Graham happily educated then on the different marsupials. The facilities are excellent and the views marvelous. We stayed in the family cabin and it was great.

We did a 2 day hike in the walls of Jerusalem national park. The park is stunning, the water is crystal clear and the mountains are incredible. On the hike we climbed out of the forest and you literally see the two rock formations rising out of the ground - absolutely stunning. The one thing I remember more than anything...
