Take a picnic or time your walks for a lunch in the cafe because there are plenty of walks you will want to do from the very easy Russell Falls to full day treks. Lake Dobson is beautiful and worth the 20 minute drive up the hills. The deciduous Fagus is an added bonus in autumn. A visit to Mount... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on a powered site in a camper van. Beautiful setting. Clean toilet and shower block. Fully equipped laundry facilities (extra cost) The visitor centre is 5 minutes walk away and has a great little cafe. The short walks to Russell falls and Horseshoe falls are stunning and easy to do with young children. Make sure... More

Visited here on a Sunday, late March. We had beautiful weather, don't think I'd like to visit on a wet or cold day. We only did the Russell Falls, Horseshoe Falls and Tall trees walk. The walk is easy enough with rests, took us about 45m each way and we're not a fit couple in our 50's. Russell falls alone... More

A wonderful place to spend time - it is beautiful. Open spaces greet you on arrival with picnic tables, but you can soon be on forest trails leading to atmospheric dells and waterfalls of magnitude. As we were crossing the lawn on the way back a snake slid across just in front of us. This is lovely.

This National Park in Tasmania is mother nature at its best given the natural beauty surrounding every corner you gaze at. The Falls are wonderful to see & hear and the walking paths are not difficult to maneuver, however, be sure to wear proper shoes. Not a bad idea to have a raincoat, just in case mother nature decides to... More

We did walk "G" from the Mt Field Pamphlet - climbing up from the Lake Dobson shelter to the alpine tracks, across Tarn Shelf, down to Twilight Tarn and then back around the track skirting Lakes Webster and Seal. The first three quarters of the walk was magnificent - up above the tree line with views across the landscape -... More

A variety of habitat to explore. We did the Russell Falls/Horseshoe falls walk, drove up to Tall Trees and did the walk and then took the road out to Lake Dobson and walked through Pandani Grove around the lake. After the majesty of the tall trees and enclosed forest, the openness of the alpine meadows was a stark contrast but... More
