Mount Field National Park is a national park in Tasmania, Australia, 64 km northwest of Hobart. The landscape ranges fromeucalyptus temperate rainforest to alpine moorland, rising to 1,434m at the summit of Mount Field West.
Mount Field National Park was founded in 1916, making it, along with Freycinet National Park, Tasmania's oldest national park. The area around Russell Falls has been protected for its natural beauty since 1885, when it was set aside as Tasmania's first nature reserve.
The park has good representation of much of native Tasmanian fauna including Wombats, Platypuses, eastern barredbandicoots, echidnas, and the Tasmanian devil.
