A white sheet of water spills over the edge of a siltstone cliff face at Russell Falls. A popular sight for visitors since its discovery in 1856, this idyllic natural setting is a perfect spot to snap a picture or two. The hike is paved and makes for easy walking through the sassafras and gum trees towards the sound of rushing water.

  • Beautiful falls with an easy short walk from the visitor centre. Definitely the best amongst the 3 falls in the area.

  • This place is 1 hour drive from Hobart City. There is an entry fee of $40 to visit this park. It is not worth paying this, just for entering this place. But you can use this pass to visit other national parks in Tasmania. There is car park available and need to display the entry ticket under your windscreen. The water fall is 10 minutes walk from the visitor centre. You walk through dense forest and it is a great experience. Lot of big trees, Fern trees, Wild mushrooms, Streams, etc. The path is well maintained and not really steep. The water fall is not that great, if you are just visiting the fall. But there is a trail for walking and you can walk if you enjoy walking in the forest.
  • A fantastic short easy walk part excellent gravel track and part boardwalk. However along the way some spectacular trees, rainforest and then at the end one of the best falls I've seen. The track to connect the walk to the horseshoe Falls was closed in August 2022 due to a fallen tree.
