Forest Secrets, Mount Field National Park

#3 of 7 in Things to do in Mount Field National Park
FOREST SECRETS is an easy nature walk with a difference!

Here you won’t just ‘look’ at Tasmania’s nature, you’ll also:

- discover Tasmanian native food, medicine and ‘hardware’ plants whilst strolling along a stunning riverside trail;

- taste forest products from your own ‘tucker box’ as you go;

- spot a wild platypus on the beautiful Tyenna River;

- browse a range of Tasmanian forest products in the shop and gallery;

- Includes free honey tasting!

You can bring a picnic and take advantage of our rustic picnic tables, and/or buy a forest flavoured ice-cream and a cold drink to enjoy in a spectacular bush setting.

Allow at least an hour to stroll the trail (less than one kilometer), look for the platypus and browse the shop - longer if you’re picnicking.

From May through September, we open only by appointment.

  • Forest secrets is a great way to spend an hour or so with the kids. You could possibly stretch to 2 hours but certainly no more. We were lucky enough to get a glimpse of a wild platypus which resides in the river there.
  • Delightful interesting place. Native food information great. Be warned .they close for winter.
