Mt field, Wildlife & Mt Wellington
Wilderness, Waterfalls & Wildlife! Walk among the giants on the Tall Trees track, see spectacular Russell Falls, visit a Wildlife Sanctuary to meet some our favourite locals, and finish the day with expansive views of Hobart & beyond from kunanyi/Mt. Wellington.
Mt. Field offers a variety of walks in one of Tasmania’s oldest National Parks. Most famous for Russell Falls & the Tall Trees track we explore the great short walks within this diverse Park which is just a short 1.5 hour drive from Hobart.
The Three Falls Circuit and Tall Trees Walk form a loop of the lower rainforest section of Mount Field National Park. The full circuit walk of 6kms, over reasonably easy terrain covers the parks highlights of Russell Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Lady Barron Falls & the Tall Trees Track. You have the option and time to complete 1 waterfall, 2 waterfalls or the whole circuit depending on your sense of adventure on the day!
We begin with the walk to Russell Falls which is easily Tasmania’s most recognisable waterfall with its 3-tiered drop. It is an easy and enjoyable walk along a beautiful forest track among mixed forest and temperate rainforest species. This is Tassie’s most photographed waterfall, and we soak up the awesome view before continuing our walk.
Just beyond Russell Falls we climb the stairs to Horseshoe Falls, a majestic waterfall snuggled in the forest, which some regard as even more impressive than Russell Falls! We continue along the Three Falls Circuit and enter the section known as the Tall Trees Track. High above us stand the giant Swamp Gums around 80 metres tall, the world's tallest flowering plant. From here, we have the option to complete the full circuit by continuing onto Lady Barron Falls, this is best suited to our fit and active participants. Or return back to our start point for those looking for a more relaxed experience.
We enjoy our lunch break in one of the many beautiful picnic settings of the National Park.
Next up is Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary where you’ll meet all kinds of native wildlife. Learn about Tasmania’s rare and precious fauna during an informative wildlife tour conducted by the expert staff at Bonorong.
Our final stop is the summit of kunyani/Mount Wellington, standing proud behind Hobart at 1271 metres above sea level. If your eyes aren’t watering from the icy air, they will be from the sweeping views. See the entire city, surrounding mountains and Derwent river system sparkling at your feet. This is a fantastic way to wrap up a day exploring many of Tassie’s most unique and noteworthy experiences, rainforests, waterfalls, wildlife, and fabulous scenery.
We return to Hobart around 5.30 - 6.00pm.
