Mt Field is a small mountain plateau the highest point of which, Mt Field
West (1434 mettes), overlooks a production forest in the Florentine Valley
that today isolates it from the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
While biodiversity has become the driving force in contemporary namre
conservation, it was the scenic values of a landform, Russell Falls, now a
Tasmanian tourism icon, that first ttiggered conservation initiatives in this
part of Tasmania.
