It was a great drive from Launceston to the Liffey Falls. The view of the mountains and houses was very picturesque. The only problem is that the " Liffey Falls signage " distance from one to the next was pretty big so it made us wonder if we have missed the turn at certain part of the journey. Overall i... More

There are so many photos of Liffey Falls and you think it can't possibly be that gorgeous but it is. The walk is super easy and suitable for all ages. The drive to the carpark is a little long so be prepared to keep going when you think you have missed it.

This is a fantastic waterfall and picnic area in the wonderful wilderness of Tasmania,s natural forest and waterfalls. There is plenty of parking area and wonderful walks to do for the whole family. Certainly a cheap day out take your lunch and have a picnic you will really enjoy it.

So you turn off the road and think, "OK no body has really ever heard of this place", and you keep going down and down and down like think again "Will we find dinosaur bones now?", and holy cow, you get to the parking lot and you discover just how many other folks have come here today! A real hidden... More

It's only a relatively short walk to view these falls but they are some of the most beautiful I have seen. There are many great spots to stop and enjoy the area and all the forest has to offer. There is adequate parking, restrooms and picnic areas. Take your time to look around and find amazing algae growth on the... More

An easy walk to a beautiful location! I love this place and the waterfall at the end. There's not usually many others there so it's nice to go somewhere quiet with a few friends

Liffey falls is an absolutely beautiful location. A stunning waterfall, with many viewpoints and the ability to walk on the rocks and get close to the falls. The drive to the falls itself is quite narrow, so take care when using the road in to the falls.

I did these falls as part of the Cycle Trails Great World Heritage ride. Along the set route are signposts where you stop and listen to corresponding podcasts which explain the area and its history. Once you're at the Liffey Falls park there's picnic tables and facilities and a nicely formed track that leads down to the main falls itself.... More
