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

I passed by and decided to go take a look. The path is easy and pretty short, so it's suitable for all ages. The fall isn't very spectacular but overall a good place to take a break

A nice, quiet natural location, with a fairly easy walk to viewing locations. Interested to view the windfarm as well! The weir makes the falls less impressive than would otherwise be, but still a nice stop on the drive.

Not too far out of Deloraine these lovely falls are a short walk from the picnic area and car park. Well worth a drive to see these falls and to enjoy the walk through the beautiful forest as well.

Although obviously not running full, it was still quite pretty. A bit steep in places but still not too difficult. We even had a wheely walker with us. They say its just as good as Russell Falls, but we felt it fell way short of...More

Great falls at the bottom of a relatively easy walk. Beautiful tree ferns. Well maintained path. Access to falls at a number of points and seats to rest on the way back up if needed. Suitable for most people who are ambulant. Not really suitable...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
