Temperature was 1deg and it was heavy fog in low areas. Walk to Falls was easy through rainforest of Tree Ferns. Falls were amazing. Multi-levels make the waterfall remarkable

On a horrible wet day, we had a stop at Mount Field NP and walked to the Russell Falls. It is an easy 20 minute round trip on a well maintained path and due to the rain the falls looked lovely.

This park is easily accessed in car from Hobart. Depending on how much trekking you want to do there are easy short walks to more advanced ones. There are several waterfalls in park which are great photo opportunities.
