Mt. Field National Park, Tasmania
Horseshoe Falls is situated in the Mt. Field National Park, and is a short 10 minute walk from the impressive Russell Falls, and about a 50 minute walk to Lady Barron Falls. The walking track is well maintained, meandering through some of Tasmania's best rainforests. The track has information / education signs along the way highlighting fauna and flora which is distinctly unique to the region.
From Horseshoe Falls, it is approximately a 1 hour hike to Lady Barron Falls, along the Tall Trees circuit. This walk showcases the tall trees in the area, with information regarding the ecology of the region.
The waterfall itself is encased in a natural ampitheatre with eye catching rainforest, and despite not being as well known as Russell Falls, many would regard it the treasure of Mt. Field National Park.
