The walk to Lady Baron falls is through the tall trees and has many dips and inclines. Each of the three falls in Mt Field Nat Park is different and if you have the time well worth a visit. The walk back from the falls along the stream is beautiful and peaceful. Be aware that there are a sets of steep stairs to navigate before you reach the cafe

I've attached pictures of the 2 steepest steps on the path. The stone steps go from Russell falls up to Horseshoe falls. The 200 + wood steps go up from Lady Barron falls. IF you start at Lady Barron Falls you can go DOWN all the stairs instead of up! I wish we had known as my 67 yr old father with a pace maker would have preferred this. He made it ok with lots of rests on the stairs but you don't have to suffer!

Before travelling to Tasmania, we had researched things we wanted to do and had actually called in to the Mt Field visitor centre on our way to the Styx Valley Giant Trees. The friendly and helpful staff showed us the walks on offer from the visitor centre including the Tall Trees circuit. We set off toward Russell Falls which is the accessible walk to the base of the falls where most of the visitors go. We then climbed the stairs to the top of the falls and continued out to the Horseshoe Falls. From there, you can return to the carpark or commence the loop through the Tall Trees walk to Lady Barron Falls in order to return to the carpark.
The Tall Trees walk winds through the swamp gums and rainforest to the base of Lady Barron. You then go along the river for a way before climbing back up 230+ stairs before a gentle descend through more forest to the Visitor Centre.
The whole walk is around 3 hours and just so enjoyable with varied highlights and scenery which changes consistently. Thoroughly enjoyable and very cool in the forest on a hot day. Would also love to visit on a cool misty day. We never made it to the Styx Valley as we were very satisfied with our walk and experience here.

The Russell Falls, Tall Trees, Lady Barron watetfall circuit passes through fern filled rainforest and woodlands containing the famous giant swamp gums.

There are three waterfalls, Russell, Horseshoe and Lady Barron, to take in.

Russell is on the coach tour itineries and can be busy but the long flight of stairs to the top of the falls and the start of the Tall Trees circuit thins the crowd quickly.

If you don't have the time, or the inclination, for the additional 40 minute walk back to the visitor centre via Lady Barron falls, just complete the Tall Trees circuit and return via Russell falls.

The path to Lady Barron falls is a bit rougher than the more travelled paths to Russell and Tall Trees but it is well maintained. There is a long staircase section about two thirds of the way in.

The whole circuit took us about three hours at a very leisurely pace.

The cafe at the visitor centre does decent coffee and a range of meals.

This walk was the favourite on our recent trip to Tasmania. The Lady Barton Falls walk combines a number of shorter falls and tall tree walks through different forest types. The track is a mix of boardwalk, some steep sections and at times, numerous steps so not for the faint hearted. But definitely worth the effort, particularly once you get past the start of the walk frequented by bus groups and tourists only interested in the nearby falls. It's after this that you can start to really hear the wildlife and appreciate the other sounds of nature. Keep an eye out for leeches though. We managed to attract two which were easily flicked off.
