I was on my way from Devonport to Launceston. Rather than stay on the main road I happened to take the Westbury exit which is a bit passed Liffey Falls, so I took the long way. Anyway, I followed the signs to Liffey Falls and I'm pleased I did. It was about 5 deg (cold) but I had my thermals... More

It was a long drive and a bit of a walk but well worth the effort, the falls were amazing. Even had areas to have a picnic or a BBQ.

I would consider this a steep walk back up from the falls. It is lovely but in places short and sharp incline. It was very cool and as plenty of rain had fallen the waterfall was pumping. Allow an hour to enjoy it all.

The track is well made and easy to negotiate if you are of reasonable fitness and mobility but it does requirea steady climb on the way out. The falls, particularly if there is a good water supply, are magnificent and well worth the exercise of the walk.

The drive to Liffey Falls is a bit of a challenge for those of us prone to motion sickness and the walk leading to the falls, while not too arduous, is not advisable for those with bad knees. But you will forget all that as soon as you enter the falls area. Sheer magic.

A good easy walk at different levels, we managed this with young grandchildren. It was a great place to take photos. We shall go again when we have visitors to show them what Tassie has to offer.

the walk to the falls was very pleasant and the falls rather lovely. Things were quite dry at the time we went so there was minimal water over the falls. I'm sure that after a good rain they would be quite spectacular.

Liffey Falls is really off the beaten track, it is well signed, but it does take a long time to get there. we went through Deloraine and its about 20 kms from the town, then you hit a dirt track and because it had been raining in the area I was concerned we might get stuck, but the road was...

The falls are small but stunning and the walk in is not strenuous. Probably best to bring solid shoes as the track can be a little slippery in the rain. Well worth the effort to get there!
