Helicopter1

Two bushwalkers who went missing on the Forestier Peninsula east of Hobart are safe and well.

The Westpac helicopter was sent to the Fazackerly Range near Murdunna, after the men aged in their 60s got lost on the way to MacGregors Peak and raised the alarm at about 4 pm on Sunday.

A thermal imaging drone and ground crews couldn't locate the pair overnight.

Police say they found their bearings at daylight on Monday and walked out to the carpark to meet police.
