Russell Falls, Mount Field National Park
(4.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.
