All reviews car park tree ferns easy walk walking track gravel road picnic area return walk minute walk walk takes great walk worth the effort hours return lovely spot water flowing longer walk parking area lovely waterfall
Our advice, do the walk from the bottom camp site up to the falls, the walk is absolutely fantastic. The falls are beautiful and the surrounding forest spectacular. Spend a little time at the bottom camp site, beautifully maintained and there are toilets here.
Liffey Falls is a lovely short walk not far from Launceston. There are 2 car parks one at the top of the falls and one at the bottom of the falls. The one at the top is a little harder to get to but is...More
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
Fantastic place to have a family day out. Take a BBQ and your walking boots. Head to either the camp ground or the top of the falls. Take your time going for a walk to build up your appetite for lunch by the river (bottom...More
Managed to visit this trip although the "road" can be a bit of a challenge in places & one hopes the other drivers are sensible & courteous.
Good picnic facilities etc & plenty of signage plus another Tiers sculpture (No 27 Stratose which depicts the...More
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
Curvey drive. Easy down hill walk to the falls and good viewing platforms. Track well maintained. Beautiful little fungy and Forest to see. Few steps up on the way back but a chair available if you need a break
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
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 mountains. If you want to see the fire rocks but haven't time to go to Bay of Fires there is similar rocks at Hawley, near Hawley House hotel. penguins also go up on the beach of a night. Hope this helps

The reserve is well-equipped for visitors. There are toilets with disabled access and sheltered picnic areas and gas barbecues at the upper end of the reserve. A short walk leads from near the toilet block to the "Big Tree", while a walking track leads to Liffey Falls. A series of viewing platforms and interpretation signs are available along the track.
Picnic shelters are also available at the lower, Gulf Road end of the reserve.
google Liffey Falls State Reserve and go to the parks tas gov au link and will give you directions etc

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.

Hi all Am trying to sort out itinerary for 12 days in Tassie in Feb so need some expert help as we only decided to go this week so now have to arrange everything quickly.

This will be my 2nd trip and hubby's 1st. This is what I have come up with so far: Day 1: Arrive Devonport on ferry - overnight at...More

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
