You’re likely to spot Bennetts wallabies, echidnas and pademelons grazing through the alpine heathlands. Picture rolling green hills and Friesian cows – this afternoon you’ll think you’re in a butter commercial as you make your way past Table Cape, home of tulips, for views of Bass Strait, the lighthouse and coastline. Picturesque Stanley is in your sights as you head west with a view of ‘the Nut’ and a chance to explore. Your final destination is Smithton.
