What an amazing place. It was a windy dirt track to get there but definitely worth it. The walk to the falls wasn't too hard with many stops to rest along the way. There were lots of chances to see the river and multiple falls to stop and admire. I would highly recommend going to see Liffey Falls when going... More

Love Water Falls, and Liffy Falls is right up there. The walk too the Falls along the track was cool on a hot day, with shaded Tree Ferns, and some of the biggest fattest Gum Trees we had seen for quiet some time, Made's you wonder, and sad at the lost of such beautiful big trees, a good reason for...

Its a reasonable walk, bit steep in places so sturdy shoes are the go - leave those flip-flop thongs in the car. Wheel chair and baby strollers are definitely a no-go on this walk You proceed through picturesque rain forest and soon you can hear the falls in the distance occasionally catching glimpses of them as you get close. Once... More

The walk down the various levels of the falls is lengthy, owing to the many places to stop and photograph the falls (not a bad thing!) If you were a family with small children/babies you wouldn't be able to use a stroller. Likewise for wheelchairs. If you enjoy walking through the Tasmanian rain forests, you will love it.

Beautiful spot ... the drive was worth it and the walk to the falls. Walk was not too hard. Road a bit difficult as narrow when busy with other cars.

The Liffey Falls is a great day trip when staying in Launceston. The park contains georgeous ferns. The walk from the lower car park is not long and is very enjoyable with a clearIy defined path. The waterfall is beautiful. The overall scenery of the park is wonderful. Along with Cateract Gorge, it's a highlight when staying in Launceston. To... More

We decided at the last minute to go via Liffey falls on the way to cradle mountain. They are quite remote, not far off the A5 highway, but it is dirt roads. To falls are a good 20minute walk from the top car park, but it is an easy wander down and not too bad coming back up (there are... More

Trekking down the path to Liffey falls is so peaceful and tranquil. The surrounding forest is so green and full of life. You can stop along the way and take note of the different plants and wildlife that live in this awesome forestry. It is well worth the long walk to the falls because it is beautiful and so calming.... More
