Mt. Field National Park, Tasmania
Russell Falls is situated in the southern part of the Central Highlands, in the Mt. Field National Park. Approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes drive west from Hobart, Russell Falls is accompanied by Horseshoe Falls and Lady Barron Falls.
This spectacular waterfall is downstream from Horseshoe Falls on Russell Falls Creek, and has an excellent flow of water during the winter / spring months.
* These falls were originally known as Browning Falls after the original discoverer around 1856, but by 1884, it had become a very popular tourist attraction and became known as Russell Falls.
