Waterfall
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 area for lunch, a walk, a hike and to just take in the fresh air. Plenty of short walks for family's with smaller kids. Our 4 year old had no problem getting to horse shoe falls and back. Highly recommended
  • I have seen quite a few waterfalls, but at its small size it stands out as a bit different, and very easily accessible so good for families
  • Australia has incredible natural beauty and Tasmania takes that to a new level. This was our first visit to Russell Falls and it will certainly not be our last. It is a breathtaking walk amongst ancient trees, some wider than cars, experiencing the spray and power of the water falls from safe viewing platforms from the melting snow. Plan to spend a few hours walking through the park to visit the other falls near by, plus the ski fields if winter. Take warm clothing as it gets very cold and windy, plus food and water as the nearby cafe could be closed.
  • The most beautiful waterfall I have seen~ you should check it out by yourself when you travel in Tasmania. We spent 2.5 hours to finish the whole trails for visiting 3 waterfalls(Russell Falls/Horseshoe Falls/Ladies Barron Falls) they are stunning! And we enjoy the talk tree walk so much!
  • Awesome place. It turns out that Russell falls is the most visited water falls in Tasmania. ITs so amazing. Must visit place.
