Do you love learning about our local widlife and produce?


Joining us on this day trip we venture to Kettering where you will enjoy a fun filled day meeting birds of prey at Raptor Refuge. This rehabilitation centre allows you to get up close to the many beautiful species of raptor including owls, hawks, falcons and eagles. The walk and talk tour we will be taking part in will give you an experience like no other.


In the Huon Valley we arrive at Willie Smith's, an apple orchard that you can see cascading accross 115 acres of land. Here you can learn how the orchard grew from the first apple tree planted by the first of four generations of apple farmers. This is where a delicious lunch will be enjoyed made from seasonal, local produce and you will have the ability to purchase cider tastings if you wish to do so.


As we return home we will stop in at The Honey Pot where you can browse an assortment of products made from 100% Tasmanian sourced honey.


Inclusions: Luxury Coach Travel | Morning Tea | Raptors Refuge Walk & Talk Tour | Lunch at Willie Smiths & Entry to The Apple Shed Museum | Browsing Time at The Honey Pot
