All ability access to Russell Falls

30/04/2018

Tasmanian tourism icon, Russell Falls, is now more accessible for people of all abilities following a major upgrade to the track in Mount Field National Park.


Mount Field is one of the State’s oldest national parks and has an incredible range of natural environments including the beloved Russell Falls, spectacular glaciated landscapes, some of the world’s tallest eucalypt forests and a network of excellent walking tracks.


One of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks, the 25-minute return walk to Russell Falls has been improved with a focus on access for people with limited mobility.


The track has been widened to 1.8 metres, which is wide enough for two wheelchairs to pass and a bitumen surface has been added to improve the comfort for visitors and families with prams.


The $280,000 project is one of the Tourism Infrastructure in Parks projects, supporting Tasmania’s booming eco-tourism industry.
