Photographer's Note

--- Horseshoe Falls ---
Located 77 km northwest of Hobart and 8 km from Westerway, National Park is really nothing more than a trout farm, a kiosk, the Russell Falls Cottages, a camping ground and a picnic spot located on the edge of the Mount Field National Park.

Mount Field National Park was declared in 1916 after William H. Crooke had organised a National Parks Association two years earlier. The particular appeal of the National Park is that it uniquely combines tall wet eucalypt forest and cool rainforest (at Russell Falls) with glacial formations and snow country around Lake Dobson.

Russell Falls Nature Walk
The park has a number of walks ranging from the easy, level Russell Falls Nature Walk - a leisurely half hour through stands of stringybark, mountain ash (the tallest flowering plant in the world) and white gum to a section of rainforest where myrtle, sassafras, tree ferns and fungi grow in the damp cool climate around the falls.


The falls, which were discovered by a man named Browning in 1856, are truly remarkable. They are not high (40 m) but the setting and the way they are tiered (it is possible to walk across the falls between the lower and upper levels) is quite beautiful.
