17 April 2017

As we hop right into Easter, the bush walking season started with a bang today as we went in the search  
of Little Peter Rabbit.

We heard a few whispers he was hiding at Mount Field National Park in South East Tasmania, so off we went.

Where could he be hiding, we wondered, there are so many great hiding spots for him in this area?!

We decided the best thing to do was walk up to Lady Barron Falls which went past Russell Falls and a loop
back round to the Mount Field information and reception desk which was our starting point.

Now, rumor has it that if you walk the circuit in an anti clockwise direction it is a much better cardio
workout which means Little Peter Rabbit pops up here and there more often as a reward for putting in the
hard yards.

Why not, we said.  After all, he is such a cute little bunny.

The majority of the walk was very easy apart from a small group of steps just past Russel Falls, normally I would
say the whole circuit is an 'easy' walk but on the last leg is where you get your little Kinder Surprise Egg
as your Easter treat and that surprise is hundreds of stairs to the top.  

So, if you wish to make it an easier on yourself then you need to walk up Lake Dobson for a few minutes,
this runs right past the information center and you will come to a sign saying 'Lady Barron Falls - One of Tasmania's 60
great short walks. If you start from here you will then be walking in a clockwise direction.

The Lady Barron Falls walk was very enjoyable with lots of waterfalls, new fungi starting to sprout and
of course we can't forget the main thing...we succeeded in finding Little Peter Rabbit.

 

HOW TO GET THERE:

- Drive past New Norfolk and continue on to Mount Field National Park

- Park at the visitor center

- The walk starts behind the visitor center
