Lady Barron Falls Circuit

Lady Barron Falls Circuit

Mount Field National Park

Directions - Located just over an hour west of Hobart, take the Brooker Hwy north and follow the signs for New Norfolk. Pass through the town and follow the signs for Westerway and then Mount Field National Park. Turn right into Mount Field National Park and the trail head is located behind the Visitor Centre using the path to the left.

The Hike - With an excellent morning spent exploring the stunning Mount Field East circuit, I drove back down the mountain with the hopes of tackling the very different Lady Barron Falls Circuit. With lush temperate rainforest, waterfalls in abundance and the largest flowering trees found in the world, it was a stark difference to the mountains, alpine fields and lakes of the upper reaches of Mount Field National Park. Having finished the Mount Field East hike in bright sunny weather, I was hoping that the sunshine would disappear for the next hike as the rainforests are not at their photographic best in these conditions. Having checked the weather forecast it was saying afternoon rain was on the horizon so with plenty of time I decided to wait around for a while before starting the hike.
