The summer season is now well and truly underway, and we have completed five triumphant tours. The weather has been classically Southwest Tassie with almost every condition possible experienced at some stage or another! We had a blizzard on Mount Field one tour, scorching Tasmanian sun on another, and bizarre storm like conditions most recently! All of these elements have come together to create remarkable and unique experiences for all!
THE TURNING OF THE FAGUS
A Very Special Adventure: April 26 - 29, 2018
Lou & Cody would like to invite you for a very special Wild Pedder tour this April to coincide with the turning of the Fagus.
The Fagus (Nothofagus gunnii) is the only native temperate deciduous plant species in Australia, and is only found in the highland regions of Tasmania. Late every autumn as the days shorten and cool, the Fagus commences its process towards winter dormancy, and its leaves begin to turn....
When they turn, their leaves transform from the solar panel iridescent greens into the vibrant autumnal colours of red, orange through to golden yellows.
The Fagus is found skirting the slopes of the Rodway Range beside the Tarn Shelf, and if the conditions come together the landscape can be one of insurmountable natural beauty.
Lou and Cody would love to have you join them for the April 26 departure. Starting the day after ANZAC day (allowing you to arrive and settle into Hobart before the tour commences), our first day is planned to be on Mount Field, and we have our fingers crossed for a vibrant turning of the Fagus this year.
Thinking of heading to Hobart for Dark MOFO festival in June, 2018?
Watch this space as Lou & Cody are preparing a number of two-day winter tours to coincide with Dark MOFO taking in the joys of winter including the refugia of the rainforest, and potentially snow covered alpine!
Dark MOFO runs from June 15 - 24, 2018.
