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

My boyfriend and I did the lovely Liffey Falls walk starting at the bottom car park. We camped at the campsite at the bottom car park the night before which was beautiful. The walk took a little longer than we predicted, however it was still...More

A truly beautiful place. You need good shoes and good balance to get the best pictures but it is worth the effort. A lovely setting, well kept walks and view points. Plenty of parking. You can go down over the stones looking up at the...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.

Worth the drive to get there through the country side. A bit of a walk from each end to the actual fall. The falls appear to be in about three sections so don't think you have got to the main bit towards the bottom.

Delightful walk with my teenage children here today. My son had a photography assignment for school and I thought where better! 50 minute drive from Launceston, via Carrick, was pleasant - particularly once off the highway, and the walk though steep on the return climb...More

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
