Holidays in Mount Field National Park

Holiday Travel Guide
Mt. Field National Park

A glorious mix of fern forests, alpine heathlands, pristine waterways and cascading waterfalls, all accessible via pretty pathways, await in this park not far from Hobart.

Explore preserved tracts of ancient forest and secluded alpine landscapes and walk through shady fern gullies to some of the world’s tallest trees in Mt. Field National Park. It is part of a larger World Heritage-listed national park that has been protected for over a century. Come here to see some of Tasmania’s rugged and remote landscapes within an easy drive from Hobart.

Check out the national park’s visitor centre to learn about what Mt. Field has to offer during the season of your stay. Learn about the national park’s fascinating ecology and what species of animals you might encounter. Spot native mammals including the eastern quoll and the eastern barred bandicoot. Choose from a range of short nature walks and longer hikes departing from the visitor centre. A popular walk weaves through giant ferns and towering old-growth trees to the stunning cascades of Russell Falls. This much-photographed natural attraction adorned one of Australia’s first stamps.

Walk to more picturesque waterfalls, including Lady Barron Falls and Horseshoe Falls. Fascinating alpine plant species can be seen on the Pandani Grove trail around Lake Dobson. You’ll see the world’s tallest flowering tree, the Tasmanian mountain ash, as well as the beautiful seasonal hues of the deciduous native beech. Hike to the peak of Mt. Field to see delicate alpine heaths and cushion grasses. Pack a picnic and enjoy your lunch with magnificent mountain views.

In the winter, go skiing across the higher plateaus. Mt. Field has ski tows and a scenic network of cross-country ski trails. Go caving in Junee Cave to the south of the national park. Camping and caravan sites as well as a café and shop are located next to the park’s entrance,.

Mt. Field National Park is just over an hour’s drive from Hobart, via New Norfolk. Lodging can be found in nearby Westerway, Ellendale and New Norfolk. Check the ski report for the area by looking up the weather reports for Mt. Mawson. Entry to Mt. Field National Park requires a parks pass.
