PREMIUM Mt Field National Park & Russell Falls - photo-oriented private day tour (all-inclusive) - PhotographyTours.com.au

Mt Field National Park and its diverse wilderness wonders has captivated visitors for well over a hundred years. There’s a fascinating array of natural treasures to focus on, including the much-loved Russell Falls. This tour takes our guests on a journey to explore lush rainforest, tall tree forests and glacial landscapes reminiscent of the Gondwana era.

Russell Falls is the main attraction, but there’s much more to be seen and photographed. Unfurling fronds of tree-ferns, vibrant fungi and impressive lichens will inspire photographic creativity. An echidna may saunter nearby, a pademelon (wallaby) may be hiding in the forest undergrowth, an elusive platypus may appear in the stream. The enchanting Horseshoe Falls lures our guests to pause, and the towering eucalyptus trees will astonish.

The area around Lake Dobson is characterised by several Tasmanian endemic conifers including the Pencil Pine and King Billy Pine. There’s a diversity of flora and an abundance of birds and native wildlife too. Just as in the rainforest, this sub-alpine habitat reveals many a nature photo opportunity.

The journey to and from Mt Field passes through historic towns, nestled in a rural landscape of rolling green hills and rustic features. Photo stops en route are always encouraged.
