Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely walk down with lush bush around us. Gorgeous. Not too strenuous and great short walk. But have good walking shoes as there are exposed roots and rocks. And a bit muddy in some parts. We loved it!

Snug Falls - good walk. Parking spot was 150m away in a small car park. It’s a long downhill walk on a rough but wide track with rocks, tree roots exposed and steps. It took us about 45min down and 1 hour to return with stops. Not much water flowing in late December but the the rock pool and rocks were exposed which was nice.

For people with mobility issues - probably not worth the effort. Many other falls in Tasmania with easier hike and walkways.

We were very fortunate to have been staying right above the falls. On our last day we hiked down to the falls. The track was a bit rough and in some parts very wet and muddy. I particularly like tracks like that. The reward at the bottom is well worth the hike- beautiful waterfall surrounded by so much greenery.

We walked down to the Snug Falls on a beautiful sunny afternoon and even though the climb back was steep we made it back to the road and the car.

This is a 45 minute walk each way, through pleasant woodland to a pretty glade and waterfall. There wasn’t much water when we visited but it was still well worth the effort ... cool and green with pretty ferns. In fact the view facing away from the falls was as good as of the waterfall itself.

One thing I’ll remember for a long time is the beautiful scent of the trees and bushes as we walked. It was lemon, eucalyptus and a somewhat sweet nectar, all mixed and just so clean and relaxing. Wonderful.

We also enjoyed photographing the green parrots feeding on the bushes along the side of the path ... so wonderful to see them close up. Other small birds were also flying around, mostly sbjs, but pretty all the same.

The track is uneven, mainly with tree roots, but I would still count it as easy. It’s mostly downhill to the falls, and a steady uphill, but nothing too strenuous, on the way back. All well signposted and you can’t possibly get lost.

Recommended.

Attempted to do Kiernans Falls which is on the same track but unable to reach, this was a good plan B. Adequate parking at the top, quite a few people here on the day I went.

Certainly a great spot. Would be much better when more water would be cascading. The walk in is quiet hazardous due to all the tree roots and very steep so unless you are prepared for the steep walk back up and a little bit fit probably not a walk for elderly or anyone with health problems.

An easy and scenic drive from Hobart, the falls is a 30 min stroll down hill from the car park. Absolutely worth the relatively steep slope back up the walking track. Just take it slow if you need to.

Am sure this is a lovely walk in summer but what a mud slide in August. Luckily we had walking boots on. If you don't have them then don't go as the mud was quite deep in parts on the track! The track to the falls is downhill all the way so remember what goes down has to come up and the walk back to your car is very slippy and quite strenuous at times. I would leave this one alone in winter unless you are suitably equipped for mud.

Easy walk down to the falls approx 20 mins. Plenty of spots to rest and take in the nature along the way. Great walk for families and dogs. Once you get to fall it is beautiful. Great spot for a picnic lunch. The walk back is steep but still only takes about 20 mins
