Local Eateries

Russell Falls Cottages is self-catered accommodation. We provide a range of food hamper packs for purchase at reception (see options below). We also recommend the following local eateries:

The Kiosk at The Agrarian Kitchen 

The Kiosk is a recent addition to The Agrarian Kitchen and opened as a result of COVID-19 to offer a casual menu ideal for the whole family. Take a drive to our beautiful Derwent Valley, bring the kids and a picnic blanket, stop by our Kiosk and grab some lunch, a sweet treat, wine and beer or just a coffee. theagrariankitchen.com

The Possum Shed

The Possum Shed at Westerway (ten minutes drive) has riverside dining and great coffee. Situated on the banks of the Tyenna River, it’s a great place to indulge in home-made cakes, scones and other delights while sampling some of the wide range of teas and coffees available.

The National Park Hotel

The National Park Hotel (at the village of National Park) is ten minutes walk from the Cottages. A classic Aussie Pub, it was recently used as a location in the Hollywood film ‘The Hunter’. Have a meal and a Cascade Beer.

Waterfalls Gallery Cafe

Waterfalls Gallery Cafe is situated inside the Mount Field National Park Visitor’s Centre. It offers simple cafe dining featuring local produce and an on site art gallery.

Local Groceries 

Groceries can be purchased from the nearby Westerway general store (7 kilometres away), or the supermarket at New Norfolk (37 kilometres away). The Maydena Adventure Hub at the nearby town of Maydena features a cafe serving light meals and snacks complemented by Tasmanian wine and beer. (Closed during winter.)

Cooking Schools

Become inspired by the garden to plate experiences in the Derwent Valley.

The Agrarian Kitchen 

Reconnect with the land and learn to cook with the seasons using produce plucked from the garden at the Agrarian Kitchen Cooking School and Farm in the Derwent Valley. Established by former food editor Rodney Dunn and his wife Séverine Demanet in 2008, classes led by Rodney draw on the skills of a range of food experts who share the secrets of baking, cheese making, fermentation, cooking with fire, handmade pasta, cooking with truffles and more. theagrariankitchen.com
