Mt Field National Park

It is a beautiful sunny day here today and as Mr B's niece is currently visiting from Canberra with a friend of hers, it was the perfect opportunity for a family outing to Mt Field National Park. 

There are a whole heap of different walks you can do depending on how much time you have and how much walking you can handle. We had a few littlies with us today so we decided to do one of the shorter walks into Russel Falls and Horseshoe Falls. 

This little one did not like being in the harness with her Mother one little bit, but she was more than happy to be carried around by Mr B! 

These two cousins had a great day running and exploring in the forest. 

This is Russel Falls which is only about a 10 minute walk and more than worth it. On a hot day like today it was nice to take in this very specky view whilst enjoying the spray from the waterfall to cool you down!

Family snap!! 

After Russel Falls we took on the walk to Horeshoe Falls, which really was only another 10 minutes away but it involved like a zillion stairs and required several rest breaks. 

Again, absolutely worth it (although my legs are still arguing the point on that one!). 

Mr B and his niece on the walk back down.   

I love this photo of Mr B and another of his nieces having a rest break and a chat. 

When we got back to the Visitor's Centre, we made ourselves comfortable at some picnic tables and enjoyed a lunch of hot chips and icy poles. Mr B and his keen eye spotted this little echidna trotting along an old log so I grabbed the camera and the kidlets and we went over for a closer look. He was just so adorable!

After lunch and a rest we took the kids (little and big!) over to the park so they could burn off the last of their energy before we headed for home.  



I'm fairly sure we were all going home for an afternoon nap but it was a really great day and something we definitely have to try and do more often!
