I made a 6 hr return journey from Hobart to see Liffy Falls so I had high expectations that did not disappoint. Coming from the direction of the Central Plateau I was surprised to experience such a rapid change in landscape from rugged terrain to stunning rainforest within a matter of km. From the car park the return walk is... More

We travelled via Bracknell to Liffey and turned into the Gulf Road picnic area beside the Liffey River. We then took the walking track following the river up to Liffey Falls. The track is well formed & easy walking being flat until the last small section where there are some steps to climb. The abundance of beech & acacia trees... More

There is a bit of a drive to get here but the walk itself to the falls of the carpark is fairly easy, apart for the flight of stairs at the end. I carried my 2 month old baby in a wrap with relatively no problems, except for a little huffing and puffing climbing up the stairs. The walk itself... More

It is an easy walk for most people to do and they are some of the nicest falls in the world. Having been to quite a few countries in the world I can say that at their best they would be very close to the top

What a pretty place this is. Well worth the downhill walk from the car park. We were there just after all the heavy rains that hit Tasmania last week and the falls were roaring like thunder. I have never seen so much water in there (we have been there a couple of times before) The platypus were having a ball... More

By chance my wife & I decided to detour to Liffey Falls & what a pleasant surprise it was. Getting there is best done from Deloraine as is you come in via the township of Liffey it's about 15 more KM's of dirt road which has it's moments. The falls were a delight as was the walking track to them.... More

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.
