4.8
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Mount Field National Park
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.

    The pathway to russell falls is short and easy, you could continue to walk to Horseshoe Falls. The waterfall is ok but the walk to it is fun, walking under tall trees and fallen logs along the way.  more »

    Very leisurely walk through the woods where you'll see much greenery and spot a few cute animals. Highly recommend to continue the walk to the nearby Horseshoe Falls.  more »
