Which Waterfalls can you take your dog to in Tasmania?

Do you need a list of waterfalls you can take your dog to? Well, we've got one!  But first, lets get a few things sorted:

Dogs must be on a leash

No matter how wonderful or how good you think your dog is, there's a few reasons your dog should be on a leash.  Firstly, for other people walking to waterfalls, it helps them feel safe. This is especially true for small children. Secondly, dogs will instinctively run after things that move, like wildlife.  The natural environment deserves to be protected.

Not all public places are permitted for dogs

In fact, most of Tasmania cannot be visited with a dog. As a dog owner, you will need to check if you really can take your dog to a waterfall you're planning to visit. Seeking help from our Facebook Group is a great place to start. The list below may be incomplete, so please let us know if you know a waterfall is dog friendly, and provide proof, and we will add it to the list!

Check the signage

Many hiking areas, tracks, and natural places like waterfalls will have signage that provide information about whether dogs are allowed. Before entering any area with your dog, please check that your dog is welcome.
