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

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

Beautiful waterfalls only an hour from Launceston. Easy walk to and from the car park, very peaceful.

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.

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
