Mount Field National Park is located 70 km north-west of Hobart and has a wide variety of scenic walks, from 20 minutes to a full day. You will have to display your National Park Pass on the dashboard of the vehicle. The Visitor Information Centre at the park entrance has all the necessary information in regards to walking trails and you can also stamp your National Park Pass book there.
The most recommended walk is the two-hour circuit walk to Russell Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Tall Trees Circuit and Lady Barron Falls (details and pics are further on). Please note that it pays off to go 'against the traffic', starting your walk towards Lady Barron Falls. If you go with the flow, starting towards Russell Falls for about 500m the trail is suitable even for a wheelchair. However, to continue the walk to the top of Russell Falls you will have to conquer quite a steep climb and may loose any desire to go on...

Walking trail close to the entrance - those are native cheesetrees, not the European birches
Manferns in the forest.  There was a wallaby right there, not afraid of us at all...
The trail goes along a very pleasant creek, where trout can be easily spotted
Manferns are covered in different kinds of moss...
