A sad fact of traveling is most trips have cancellation penalties. A gloomier fact is that bad situations can happen to good travelers: A break down on the way to the airport, missed flights, lost luggage, medical emergencies, etc. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen.

Russell Falls is one of Tasmania’s most treasured places. The falls delight every visitor and can be reached by a very easy track that may suit some wheelchair users and those with strollers.
Located in Mt Field National Park, this easy walk will take you through a mixed forest comprising towering swamp gums, the tallest flowering plant on Earth, and species typical of wet forests and cool temperate rainforests, such as dogwood, musk and myrtle. Towards the falls, the track is framed by stunning tall tree ferns. The falls themselves are impossibly picturesque.
Mt Field National Park is one of Tasmania's most loved national parks. The park has a wide variety of scenic features and wildlife and offers a great range of facilities for day visitors. Few other national parks in Australia offer such diversity in vegetation, ranging from tall swamp gum forests and massive tree ferns at the base of the mountain, through rainforest along the Lake Dobson Road, to alpine vegetation at the higher elevations.
The park essentially has two visitor sections. The first, near the park entrance, includes picnic facilities and the famous Russell Falls. Stunning walks through enormous fern forests and some of the tallest trees in the world are available in this area.
The second visitor section is centered at Lake Dobson and includes the long day walks and skiing areas. For the latest snow reports during the ski season, see www.webbed.com.au/stsa. Dramatic mountain scenery and alpine plant communities are a feature of the higher parts of the park.
