Russell Falls, Mount Field National Park

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. Put Russell Falls and other Mount Field National Park attractions into our Mount Field National Park holiday website , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • The shortest walk from the visitor centre is this one and so not surprisingly it is the busiest. Carry on and see the others. it is more peaceful.  more »
  • The falls are very uninspiring and don't bother with the climb to the top of the falls. The lower view platform is much better. I guess when the water is really running it would be better.  more »
  • Nice picnic grounds and facilities, and shortish stroll to Russell Falls. More challenging step-climbing to Horseshoe Falls, but a pleasant way to work off lunch  more »
