National Parks of Tasmania (3)

Part 3 of 3

I really was going to try to combine Tasmania into one or maybe even two posts, but here I am on the third post! And the third national park, Mount Fields National Park. A commonly missed national park, it's right outside Hobart and relatively easy to get to. It features waterfalls, giant ancient trees, wildlife, and much more!

We stopped at several different waterfalls, and stayed at one for lunch.

These trees were so massive!

I found one that had been hollowed out by a fire, and, after calling out to all the poisonous things not to kill me, promptly climbed inside!

It was hollow as far up as I could see...P2232445.jpg

We walked around the lake.

And even made friends with an echidna!

And of course, it being Australia...there was an awesome warning sign!
