Spotted the waterfall when we stopped near the Bischoff Hotel to admire the view back over the town. There wasn't a great cascade of water, more an overflow from the lake across the road which seems to receive its water from the reservoir and some small creeks. Nice to see something different in the town, the water falling into the gully and continuing on as the Waratah River.

We had intentions of going to the much-celebrated Philosophers Falls, on the other side of Waratah, but time got away from us so we had to settle on the much smaller and less spectacular waterfall located in the town. From what we'd heard of Philosophers Falls it was a poor substitute but there was quite a bit of water flowing over the Waratah Falls, which was good to see, and the small lookout near the hotel provided an excellent view.

It is worth driving to Waratah to take advantage of this waterfall and the Philosopher Falls even in winter. There is a power station you can walk and also a track from one side of the Waratah Falls to the other (although we didn't do it).

Considering they weren't even signposted, we thought they were a hidden gem. If it hadn't been for finding the toilet dump point, we would never have known they were there!

These falls are visible if you go across to the hotel and look back at the town. They are in the centre of town and run a waterwheel above. Great scene.

A must to see while staying at the Caravan park.
Wear sturdy shoes for the walk to the falls, slightly steep walk back up, take your time.
Just off the main street.
Happy we came.

The falls were interesting but small and essentially right in this quirky old mining town that had seen better days. The best view of the falls is from the small viewing area adjacent to the pub just up from the historic old post office and a shame there is no path to the falls for better viewing. This town is 7 KM off the main highway but worth a visit and stepping back in time.

This whole town is picturesque and the waterfall in the middle of town is a real gem. It falls into a lovely tree filled gully. A nice grassy park where you can sit and just look. Really worth a stop. The view back over to the town is just lovely. Found it very peaceful.

When I booked our accommodation in waratah it was based on price and location close to cradle mountain. I was so surprised to see the falls in the middle of the town, they are absolutely beautiful! In fact the whole town is a hidden gem.

We visited Waratah because my friend’s great grandparents lived there. We went to the old cemetery on Old Cemetery Road. What a lovely peaceful place, worth a look for those interested in old cemeteries. Waratah is a tiny town, but very picturesque. The museum and pioneer’s hut are worth a visit. But the most amazing thing is the waterfall in the middle of the town, visible from the park opposite Bischoff Hotel. Unfortunately we didn’t go to the hotel as we arrived before midday when it opens. We then took the road back to Wynyard through Hellyer Gorge which was beautiful. A lovely day trip from Devonport.
