Mount Field National Park
An easy drive from Hobart, Mount Field National Park offers a diverse journey through the high mountains.
Across its base, waterfalls pour through cool-temperate rainforest, while high above are dramatic peaks dotted with glacial lakes and classically Tasmanian alpine plants such as pandani, scoparia, pineapple grass and cushion plants.
The visitor centre and café are fully accessible, as are the toilets within the building.
The track to Russell Falls, one of Tasmania’s best known scenic attractions, leaves from behind the visitor centre. The track surface is sealed, wide and fairly level. It is suitable for wheelchair users, although some may require assistance.
Located 50 metres before the visitor centre, the day use area has a number of accessible sites with sheltered picnic tables and barbecues.
The nearby campground has accessible toilets, and its own picnic area with sheltered tables and barbecues.
A TrailRider (all-terrain wheelchair) is available at Mount Field for visitors with impaired mobility. The TrailRider can be used on a range of designated walking tracks that are not accessible to conventional wheelchairs. Go to Trailriders for further information on use and assistance requirements.
The TrailRider is available for hire free of charge and advanced bookings are required. To book please contact the Mount Field Visitor Centre on (03) 6288 1149 or MtField@parks.tas.gov.au
