After visiting Russell Falls, we continued up the road the Lake Dobson. Fortunately, the road was open which is not always the case in winter.

The road reaches a peak near the top of Mount Field before descending into the bowl where Lake Dobson lies.  Here are a couple of images from near that high point.

There are many walking tracks in Mount Field National Park, some of them quite long.  But we were only here for a day, so we just went for a walk around Lake Dobson, of an hour or so.

I was able to give Jools something of a taste of what walking through the snow was like on the Overland Track though it was only a short walk and the weather was quite benign.

Here Jools provides a reference for size against the pandani.

The pandani grove of the western side of the lake was particularly fetching in the snow.
