The walk to the falls was breathtaking. The air is so clean. The height of the trees is something to behold. Russell Falls are amazing and you are so close. more »
Delightful visit to a bush walk area. Quite busy and lots of tourists. Great walks and falls to see and experience. Need a bit of time ideally. Cafe if you desire but fairly pricey. more »
There are excellent facilities in the park with picnic spots and bbqs with ample parking. You do need a park entry permit, available on site. The walk to the Falls is an easy 25 minutes return, howeve... more »
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
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.
Excellent walk if you make whole loop to Lady Barron Falls via Big Tree you will enjoy A LOT. Otherwise is an awesome grandpa stroll.
