“Beautiful waterfall only a short walk away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Although its not necessarily worth driving all the way to Mount Field National Park just for the falls they are still beautiful none-the-less.
They are only a 10min walk away from reception and you can had a walk too horseshoe falls and the Tall Tree walk if you want to go a bit further.

“Not to Be Missed Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

These falls are a must see while you are in Tasmania. It’s an easy walk from the Mt Field National Park visitors center to the falls along a sealed path. While the falls themselves are amazing and a not to be missed experience, the walk there is just as magnificent. The path has you walking through rainforest with beautifully tall trees and it is just breathtaking.

I highly recommend you take this amazing walk, which will show you a tiny slice of how beautiful Tasmania is.

“Beautiful and Accessible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

A lovely drive, an easy walk and astounding natural beauty! Russell Falls and Horseshoe Falls are two of the most wonderful 'boutique style' waterfall sights you can see. Nestled in the Mount Fields National Park the access to these gems is very good and is wheelchair friendly. A great café at the Tourist Centre will also add to your experience. A bit further on is Mount Mawson which has snow skiing facilities.

“Very pretty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We first visited Russell falls in 2007 and were blown away by the volume and ferocity of the water that tumbled over the falls and crashed into the river bed at the bottom. There had been significant rain the night before and the falls were just awesome. However, we revisited this spot last November and the experience was totally different . This time the flow of water was significantly less which made the vista much more serene and absolutely beautiful to behold. There has also been a lot of boardwalk installed since our last visit which made the climb up to the top of the falls much easier.
I would strongly suggest that you visit Mt Field National park and Russell falls in particular. It is one of the most spectacular sights in Tasmania.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

The falls were amazing ,the walk to the falls was amazing it was as if you surrounded by a blanket of green with the moss and ferns we also managed to see a little wallaby bound across the path just in front of us . The falls themselves are breathtaking with three cascades a great visual we were lucky that there had been overnight and early morning rain which produced run off as several locals had said because of the lack of rain it would not be as good visually one can only imagine how spectacular these falls would be in full flight.Wish we could have spent more time here and seen the other attractions as well like the horse shoe falls.
