Mt Field National Park is located around 1 hours drive from Hobart and has a number of day walks that range from easy to more difficult full day walks. The visitors centre at the park entrance has toilet facilities as well as a cafe and is the main parking area used to access the famous Russell Falls track. To access the ski fields, continue past the visitors centre and follow the dirt road for 20kms. There are a number of walks that can be accessed from the road and all are clearly marked. The ski fields have a few nutcracker style tows that run if there is sufficient snow cover.
Car access to Lake Dobson and the ski fields is not guaranteed after decent snow but there is a grader that is used to clear the roads. Road closure information can be obtained by calling 03 6288 1149
The main ski slope also has a webcam that can be checked at any time.
