A good walk with an excellent non-slip pathway. There was a barrier all the way, meshed in places for extra safety. I would've liked to see it meshed all the way as I was a bit worried my 4 year old granddaughter could slip through....More

It is a nice stop if you are visiting Queenstown. Just a short walk through a well constructed and secure road and you will see the fall and a nice view of queenstown.

Opposite Iron Blow, Horsetail Falls is definitely worth the short walk. Recently built boardwalk and Lookout offers fantastic views of the falls but also Queenstown’s rugged yet beautiful mountains and valleys. Loved this area of Tasmania, learning its rich history and will definitely visit again...More
