Stopped here to walk the forest. Beautiful tall trees in a quiet setting. Great chance to see wallabies along the lower trail. Outstanding foliage of all kinds with some good signage explain what we're looking at.

The falls really are impressive, and it's the most accessible national park we found is tassie or Victoria. The short trip from the at park would be easily accessible for a wheelchair. The stair climb to the top of the falls is a nice, somewhat less crowded addition if you don't mind a little exercise. The Tall Trees walk nearby... More

As natural wonders go, Russell Falls is hard to beat with its Lord of the Rings style forest and gorgeous falls. Pretty hard to not have a great time here.

The walk to the falls was breathtaking. The air is so clean. The height of the trees is something to behold. Russell Falls are amazing and you are so close.

Delightful visit to a bush walk area. Quite busy and lots of tourists. Great walks and falls to see and experience. Need a bit of time ideally. Cafe if you desire but fairly pricey.

There are excellent facilities in the park with picnic spots and bbqs with ample parking. You do need a park entry permit, available on site. The walk to the Falls is an easy 25 minutes return, however allow much more than this as there is so much to see, so stopping along the way is inevitable and very enjoyable. It... More

Well-designed walkway suitable for all age groups takes you into the falls through an amazing rainforest. It's like stepping back in time, and once you get to the falls it makes the walk worth while. Recommended for all age groups as an easy 1 .5 km round trip walk

I'd forgotten just how lovely the Russell Falls are. Fantastic for using your photographic skills. Easy flat walk to get there too.

This short walk is very easy and accessible to most people. The falls are lovely and very popular. Go to the National Parks Info Centre for maps of all walks.
