Bring your best fitness smile as this walk can be a little challenging for those not used to walking. Good shoes are a must as the ground tends to remain soggy and muddy. The net result is a beautiful view of the waterfall. There were...More

The falls are beautiful and the walking track not too difficult even for me, having had a knee replacement earlier this year. The drive down was an amazing part of the experience. The road is windy and the rainforest vegetation almost makes a arch over...More

The drive up the Liffey falls was a good challenging drive as the road narrows down and it’s gets to an off road mode. The walk down to the waterfall is really easy and a piece of cake for experienced bushwalking people. Once you reach...More

The drive to Liffey is an experience - beautiful and momentarily challenging. The road narrows considerably as you get further into the parking area, it is riddled with potholes! The walk is beautiful, but be sure to wear sturdy footwear rather than runners as it...More

Quite a nice easy walk. This one would be perfect in summer with all the tree coverings. It was on the cool side for winter! It has the typical relaxing rainforest feel. The ferns are beautiful. Wide paths and easy with children. Where we parked...More

Despite the road closure we decided to take the 'alternative' route and weren't disappointed. Kids 5, 7, 9 and 12 managed the massive 2 hour return! Walk possibly more spectacular than the fall themselves and it could do with a bigger viewing area and seats...More

We decided to divert to the falls late May and after driving over potholes etc for about 5km there was a new looking "road closed" sign stuck in the middle of the track./ Why that was not 5km before ask the Forestry Dept, obviously not...More

Such a lovely place to visit. Famous falls and a good walk to get there. Such a lovely place to spend a sunny day. Have visited on more than one occasion. Plenty of photo opportunities.

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
