About Westmoreland Falls

Westmoreland Falls is a magnificent hidden gem tucked away in lush rainforest, just a short 15 minute drive from Mole Creek.  Driving to the waterfall from Mole Creek was relatively easy, though signage is rather poor.  it is very easy to drive past the carpark area of the Westmoreland Falls, due to lack of signage.

The track to the falls is marked by small ribbons and arrows, which guide you through the dense scrub to your destination. The walk itself is typical for an uneven bush track, with sections of the walk quite steep. After approximately 40 minutes of walking, you reach Westmoreland Falls, and the effort is well worth it.

The Beauty

Westmoreland Falls is absolutely gorgeous, and well situated in its intimate surroundings. For photographers, there's many vantage points to photograph the waterfall, due to the walk taking you directly to the base of the falls. Adjacent to Westmoreland Falls are small cascades which also make for lovely photographic opportunities.

If you're visiting North / North West Tasmania, Westmoreland Falls is definitely worth checking out. For a full day of waterfalls, consider visiting Lobster Falls, near Mole Creek, or the beautiful Liffey Falls, just 30 minutes away by car.
