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.

Check out the mighty Russell Falls!

Russell Falls is one of three falls that share the same watercourse, and it is without a doubt the centrepiece of the National Park.

You can easily spend a whole day admiring the beauty of the Falls...

It is one of Tasmania's most treasured places, with its two main drops with a stunning segmented, vertical appearance, and tiered-cascade waterfall on the Russell Falls Creek.

The stunning Russell Falls!

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.

One of the many lookouts on the way to Russell Falls

There are camping facilities at Russell Falls with toilets, electric Barbecues, kiosk and visitor centre near the start of the track. There are cabins also available just outside the park boundary.

The walk is breathtaking...

The walk is pram/strollers and wheelchair accessible, returning the same way only.

There are park entry fees to Russell Falls- see below for prices.

Do not forget to look up and be in awe with the giant tall trees & canopies...

Take a break at this fallen tree!
