Without doubt this is Tassie's most stunning waterfall
Be enchanted and bewildered with Tasmania's most breathtaking waterfall; Russell Falls. These picturesque Falls are located at the World Heritage Mt Field National Park, just over an hour drive from Hobart.
The charming rainforest walk takes around 20-minutes with well-maintained tracks and boardwalk. The walk passes through towering swamp gums and typical wet forests as well as cool temperate rainforest with surrounding stunning tall tree ferns.
You can return via the same track or alternatively follow the creek back by crossing the bridge below the falls. If you are camping at the National Park, the walk can be accessed at night for a magical experience of exploring the Falls and spotting out glow-worms!
Russell Falls is the ultimate perfect day trip for all ages, with its magnificent wilderness and easy drive from Hobart this is a must add to the bucket list! It truly is an enchanting waterfall and walk.
