Worth the short hike

A lovely place to hike to view the waterfall from below or above. Take a picnic as nothing available. Can even leave the car at the bottom if you prefer a longer hike.

Partly our fault as we headed there coming from Freycinet National Park and got to the start of the road to the falls around 4pm. However there were no warning signs explaining that there may be heavy snowfall, chains should be worn or not recommended for light vehicles during snowfall. As tourists from Melbourne, we had our rental car; a... More

On a warm day, the shady walk down to Liffey Falls is very pleasant. The walk is quite easy (gentle slope) but could pose problems for elderly people who require support to walk. The path, when damp or wet, would also be quite slippery. As we visited in summer, the amount of water coming down the falls was significantly reduced,... More

Too many visitors arriving and leaving, lot of photographers doing their thing - have seen this many times at these falls - very touristy - at least in summer, But!!! Waterfalls are at their best in winter and after snow/rain...so not many people about then, great pix

Couldn't actually reach the falls this trip, too much snow which was just as good!! But have been there previously and can say it is beautiful all year round. Worth doing if you are in the area.

We really enjoyed our walk at Liffey Falls. It was serene and picturesque, a great place for some photo ops. We did considered it a pleasant walk but not challenging--but we are in shape. We drove from downtown Launceston to the falls, and it was a challenge. At least 15 miles of dirt roads that got narrower and narrower. So... More

The walk was relatively easy most of the way and then a little steep on the way back up from the bottom of the falls, only took us around 45 minutes return from the top car park. The walk is spectacular and very rewarding, there are multiple lookouts along the way and from the upper carpark you spend most of... More

Walk down is easy....walk back is hard....but that's because i'm not fit!!!!! So much plant life to look at and a really ancient sassafrass tree i think it was......HUGE. Made me feel insignificant on this planet.
