We were picked up at our lodging in Launceton mid-morning by Ben Williams for what turned out to be the highlight of our stay in Tasmania. We drove to the Ben Lomond area for what turned out to be some terrific mountain side viewing. We next headed to what could be considered a private forest. We walked around the area... More

We spent a couple days with our guide, Bushy's son, Ben. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the terrain, foliage and especially the wildlife. We saw platypus, quoll, a Tasmanian Devil, wallabies, kookaburra, and many other species. Ben took us from Tasmania's only ski resort to a couple of little, rustic cabins deep in the bush, where Ben fixed us gourmet... More

We had a one day tour, picking up from our accommodation at lunchtime, lasting about 8 hours. Craig was a very helpful and knowledgeable guide, as well as great company. We started with looking (successfully) for platypus, then drove to the Ben Lomond national park for great views over the area - all accompanied by lots of local information about... More

We were honored to spend 8+ hours with "Brushy" who is a true expert. It did make a long day with us getting back near midnight (partly our fault as we had to push back our start by 2 hours). He first took us to Ben Lomond (a spitting image of Scotland) - only 40 km from Launceston but on... More
