This is a 1hr 30min return walk. The forest has a mystical feel to it and out of a scene from Jurassic Park. There are some very old trees and ferns in there, the walking path is well sign posted and for most part of...More

What a totally mesmerising place, you feel like you've gone back in time walking through this forestry with its magical trees, plants, & birds singing all around. It's well signposted to the falls which do not disappoint, they are spectacular. I could have happily spent...More

Stunning waterfalls, the walk was ok although I huffed and puffed a bit it was well worth it. So do yourself a favor and it’s good exercise take that slight detour.

We drove to the upper car park, the last part of the drive on a very narrow, curvy, dirt road. The walk was down to each of the cascades and then finally the falls was really easy. The falls are stunning and worth either the...More

What a stunning location. The trek to the falls was lovely with little stops along the way to admire the beauty of the landscape. Listening to the water was so peaceful and invigorating. I expected the waterfall to be larger but still was incredibly beautiful.......More

This wonderful world heritage area can be accessed by 2 different routes; one from Liffey and one from Deloraine. The route from Liffey is unsuitable for cars without four-wheel drive though, with the route from Deloraine being better. The upper car park, which is located...More

Definitely go to Cataract Gorge in Launceston. Driving up to Cradle Mountain is lovely but you need a whole day there as the tours are quite long. We stayed at Jackey's Marsh which we loved. Fabulous views of the... More

Liffey Falls - Which way is up? (6 Replies)
I am confused about mention of the Upper and Lower carparks at Liffey Falls. Are they accessed from completely different roads? One seems to be a longer walk to the falls than the other. Is one way recommended above the other? How do the access roads compare? We would be hoping to travel in from Westbury, as a detour en route to Deloraine and ultimately on to Mole Creek that night. Any comments on whether it is a worthwhile detour would be welcome. Also, does "Upper" , in this case, refer to...More

That was the general description for all the lurkers. Now specifically for you: From Westbury, head west along the old, bypassed highway toward Deloraine. Half way to Deloraine, you'll drive through the thriving metropolis of Exton. 100 metres past the centre of the village, there's a T intersection on the left that goes to Golden Valley. Turn left down this road and it will take you to Liffey Falls. This will save you about 20 minutes off the drive via Deloraine. Luigi

Hello fellow travellers,i am researching a 11 day trip for family of 4 (2 teenagers). On day 5 we will leave Cradle Mt and travel to Burnie, Penguin,Devonport on the way to Launceston. But i think we should stop for the night at Deloraine, so that next day on the way to Launceston we can go to Mole Creek caves and Liffey Falls. Does any body have experience with Accommodation in Deloraine. HAve got a quote from Mountainview Inn and Bonney Inn.

In Zeehan, don't miss West Coast Pioneer Museum. Just before this museum is an excellent bakery with homemade pies. You also can take Zeehan's historic walk but we didnot do. Also maybe see Gaiety Grand, just a short walk from the museum. It's possible to do the drive from Maydena to Strathgordon and back in one day but I would not recommend. You'll need your time for Mount Field., Styx Valley (one way for 14 kms and back same way), Gordon Dam and Lake Gordon. We stayed Strathgordon for the...More
