What we love about this tree:
It has an incredible flared base that dominates the forest around it.
Announced in the local newspaper as possibly Australia’s largest tree, the Kermandie Queen is a fantastic specimen of a giant gum tree. There’s been talk of building an access track to see this tree – hopefully one day in the not-too-distant future it will be a prime tourist attraction in the Southern Forests.

We acknowledge the long human history of Tasmania and pay our respects to the Tasmanian Aboriginal communities.

Yoav is the absolute best person to take you on a journey into the forest – an expert botanist, pioneer tree climber and thoughtful conversationalist. We enjoyed the submersion in… read more the wilderness, magical mossy greens and ferns, towering trees and a hidden waterfall. It would be hard to find the special spots we visited on your own. As well as being able to identify myriad species, Yoav adds geological time-depth to the knowledge he imparts. Lunch and gourmet snacks are provided and transport to and from your accommodation. We based ourselves at Mt Field National Park. All in all a sublime experience.
