What to explore!

The Derwent Valley which is only a very short drive from Hobart, stretches from Granton to Mt Field and Lake St Clair to Lake Peddar...the distances are huge. I personally think it is one of the best untouched areas in Tasmania but I may be biast!. Meandering on windy roads, through quaint little towns, picturesque countryside with plentiful vegetables and fruit to be tasted on the way, how could you not want to come and see for yourself?. The Wilderness is sublimely incredible, to have so many walks and untouched areas, beautiful waterfalls and its all at our doorstep. So in saying all of this, I thought I would give a short list as its hard to mention everything that you can do here.....you would need weeks and weeks!

 The Gordon Dam is mind blowing and man made in the early 1970's. It is located out near Lake Peddar which is 140 metres high and you can abseil off this with Aardvark Adventures......
