The whole park is beautiful and carters to pretty much everyone. The walk up to the falls is wheelchair friendly. We spent about an hour just sitting at the falls it was so beautiful. Great additional amenities, and there is different legs of the overall walk you can do.

It was on the whole, pretty and pretty average. The rainforest was cool and nice, and it takes little effort to stroll through it. You will need the weather to co-operate. The cafe serves good coffee.

My Good Lady Wife and I decided to take a drive out from Hobart to Mount Field National Park to see Russell Falls. After driving through some charming if somewhat dry countryside, dotted with hop fields, poppies and cherry orchards, we arrived at the Park and found a picnic shelter in which to take our lunch. The shelters are roomy... More

we drove up to the top of the mountain stopping at the visitor centre and Russell Falls waterfalls en route. We completed a 11-12ish mile bush walk from the car park around lake Dobson (map attached) across the tarn shelves and back down to twilight tarn and the lakes at the base of the mountain. Good walk - rocky in... More

The walks to Russell Falls is quite suitable for all ages, visitors with elderly members just be sure to hold on to them while taking the walk as certain areas will be a tad slippery.

Mt Field offers terrific short walks for all ages and fitness levels. The main attraction, Russell Falls is only a short 20 minute walk from the car park. There are longer walks for those looking for longer day walks. Mt Field Nat Park provides various attractions. An easy drive from Hobart. Well worth spending quality time here.

We were revisiting the Mount Field National Park and this time we made it to the top. We walked around the lake and it was an easy 40 minute walk through various bush landscapes.

This such a beautiful spot. The visitors centre is run by very enthusiastic staff who are very willing to help. The first walk is easily accessible to Russel Falls which is absolutely breathtaking. If your up for it there is more walks you can take for there. We took a BBQ lunch accessing the free BBQ facilities in one of... More

Good hikes for varying levels of fitness, beautiful waterfalls. Only 1.5 hour drive from hobart, parking costs only like $25 if I recall correctly, the cafe offers food and beverage (very overpriced though)

Thank Mel and Dave C
