Russell Falls

Russell Falls is one of Tasmania’s best known scenic attractions. The falls can be reached in an easy 10 minute forest stroll from the Mt Field National Park visitor centre car park. The path to the falls is sealed, making it suitable for wheelchair use. You can return from the falls via the same track or cross the bridge at the base of the falls and return on the unsealed track on the other side of the creek.

Horseshoe Falls

Cross the bridge below Russell Falls and take the track to the left to beautiful Horseshoe Falls – about 10 minutes further via stairs and a moderately steep, but well maintained track.
