The falls is in flow through out the year. However much depending on the rainfall. The walk to it is easy and there is a number of trees and ferns to see as well as wildlife if you are quite.

During our trip around Tasmania, we looked at several of the more highly rated waterfalls, with St Columba Falls being one of our favorites, until we visited Nelson Falls, which became our new favourite. But not for long - when we saw Russell Falls, it...More
