Russell Falls and Mt Field National Park.
Mt Field National Park was the first National Park declared in Australia in 1901. On the edge of the Tasmanian Southwest Wilderness, it is an hour's drive from Hobart. Russell Falls is reached by a well maintained walking track (handicapped access). It is one of the most famous and picturesque waterfalls in Australia. The feel of the rainforest is incredible - quiet, moist, and amazingly green. Even if you are visiting Cradle Mountain, it is worth visiting Russell Falls. Mt Field National Park has the tallest flowering plant in the world growing among the manferns- the incredible Swamp Gum (Eucalyptus) - reaching 60 Metres (200 ft) into the rainforest canopy. Mt Field National Park is a great rainforest experience.
The Derwent Valley.
To get to Mt Field National Park you will drive through the Derwent Valley, following the Derwent River to New Norfolk. This is fertile, rolling farmland, one of the major hop growing areas of Australia. Settled early in the 1800's, the land has been farmed for over 200 years. It is also home to the Salmon Ponds, Tasmania's Trout Hatchery and Trout Museum. Even if you are not a fisherman, this gives a fascinating look at the development of the trout fishing industry and is the oldest trout hatchery in the Southern Hemisphere.
