Adding this old one, as I noticed comment that this falls was hard to get to. There is actually a good track (mountain bikable) from the road to near the top of the falls, and from there you can easily packraft/lilo to the top of the falls
2019 (1 waterfall visited)
22 Aug 2019
Visited this falls a few times - before the new walkway was installed, when it was in stalled (this pic) and have also ridden to the top on the new MTB track ... this was the best photo.
2020 (2 waterfalls visited)
18 Oct 2020
Was out exploring possible mountain bike rides in the area, and thought I'd make a quick visit to these falls. Steep towards the end, but worth it.
24 Oct 2020
After having visited from the top car park on several occasions, this was my first walk up from the bottom car park. Lovely walk. Highly recommend.
2021 (2 waterfalls visited)
24 Jan 2021
After a play at the Oonah MTB Trail, the ride into Montezuma Falls made for a lovely (but long) day.
12 Jun 2021
Ridden past this falls so many times, finally decided to pop in and have a look. Well worth the 10 minute diversion, but leave your MTB at the fence and just walk down.
2022 (41 waterfalls visited)
24 Apr 2022
Heading up to Ansons Bay for a bit of mountain biking, I stopped here for the night to camp and really enjoyed the short walk out to the two falls in the morning and watching the autumn leaves in the park. Great spot.
08 May 2022
Visited Billy Brown Falls after recent very heavy rainfall (130mm in previous three days). The falls were booming, and very slippery. Whoever is maintaining the walking track in is doing a great job, although the road is another matter.
15 May 2022
Lovely little waterfall to visit, albeit with low flow. I completely overshot the falls initially heading up the path into the bush (due to Listmap being a bit deceptive). Much closer to the fence than I expected. No track.
25 Jun 2022
Bad weather day and wasn't really motivated until I got onto the track, but once there it was a great walk, amazing fungi and lots of scrambling under and over downed trees.
02 Jul 2022
Found this on the map half way around the circuit so did a quick visit to the overlook
16 Jul 2022
Will need to save a closer visit to another day.
Track into the top of Pelverata Falls has really deteriorated. Hard slog in, even on the ebike.
07 Aug 2022
Both the walk in and the falls are definitely worth it, and while the track is wet at this time of year, it is still a photographers delight,
The track from Adamsons Falls to Creekton Falls is heavily taped, but it still takes a fair bit of navigation and is tricky underfoot with lots of ups and downs. Definitely worth it, even if it doesn't feel it at the time.
21 Aug 2022
A wonderful, and much short walk, into Marritots Falls. Only took 30 minutes each way. Track slightly muddy and slippery underfoot.
Continuing up from Marriotts Falls, the track was much clearer and better marked than I expected. Took about an hour return from Marriotts Falls.
Had planned to go and visit Sharpes Falls, but road was signed to 'no unauthorised entry' so did a quick walk around the Lady Barron Falls circuit (counter clockwise direction).
Arrived here after visiting Lady Barron Falls and wondered why it was so quiet (no one at all around). 1 minute further along I found the track to Russell Falls was closed ... then it was the long walk back.
After having to retrace my route from Horseshoe Falls back to the road and walking back that way, I still decided to do a quick trip out to Russell Falls to make it five waterfalls in a day ... a good day.
25 Aug 2022
I have visited this falls on multiple occasions across the years, and this was just meant to be a quick stop on my way past. Really glad I called in as the flow was just perfect.
This was a really short stop (made shorter by the poor weather and a large snake lying across the track and unwilling to move on), I think a nice spot in summer (without snakes) but on a drizzly winter day, not so much.
A five hour drive, followed by several hard kilometres on the mountain bike and a final rock scamble up the creek below the falls, finally unveiled this hidden falls. Very tricky last section with water levels.
26 Aug 2022
40kms of coastal riding through soft sand, fast flowing rivers and incoming tides followed by a final bush bash through thick scrub uncovered this hidden gem ... probably nicer (and easier to get to) with less water flow.
Great night at Waratah including a stroll to the bottom of the falls, watching a platypus playing in the ponds as the sun set, then some night shots of the lit up falls and another rambler around town in the morning ... loved it.
27 Aug 2022
Visited this falls many years ago and honestly didn't think I'd come back, but with low cloud and drizzle hanging around, I decided to do a revisit to pass some time ... and really glad I did as there was much more water this time around.
My plans for a ride up Mt Donaldson put on hold due to low cloud and rain, I instead headed off to the nearest falls, which happened to be Wandle Falls. A fun little walk in along a taped path was well worth it. Photos don't do it justice
My last minute plans to visit Owen Brooks Falls and Cam Falls foiled by no mobile coverage, just as I was wondering what to do a see a road sign to Guide Falls ... so that's where I headed. Lovely spot.
With thoughts turning to home after visiting Guide Falls, I decided a quick lap of the new Burnie Pump Track followed by a short walk to Oldaker Falls (and lunch) was in order. Not much positive to say about this one other than a nice walk
04 Sep 2022
Set myself a fun challenge this morning to see how many waterfalls I could visit in a morning. I started at Strickland Falls, and from there it was onto the ebike and foot ...
A good uphill warm-up ride from Strickland Falls up Strickland Avenue, Huon Road and S57 led to Bracken Lane Fire Trail and then a short walk to the falls themselves ...
After visiting O'Gradys Falls, it was a nice little off track walk to the Featherstone Cascades. Hard to think of these as a waterfall, and wouldn't encourage others to follow as it was a sensitive area.
After some fun, but muddy, MTB riding along Pitfall and Stumpside Tracks, I followed the directions (and pink tape) on foot out to Fairy Falls ... Defintely worth the hike. Four falls down.
After the walk back to the bike from Fairy Falls it was a fun ride down the Upper Luge to the start of the Myrtle Gully Track and then a short and beautiful walk to Secret Falls. Lots of people out and about as the day went on. Fall #5
A hop, skip and a jump above Secret Falls, another great fall to visit. Loved this area. Fall #6
Quite the epic ride (and walk) to get here and then back to the car by noon. Probably the least interesting fall of the day (must go back when it has more water), and with three major cascades, hard to photograph. Still glad I visited.
17 Sep 2022
It's been a long time time between visits to this falls, and with some spare time this morning I enjoyed an ebike ride to the start of the walking track, and then probably an hour return walk to the falls. Pic taken from below the lookout.
Joy of an ebike, it was an easy side trip to visit this falls before a mad dash back to the car in order to make a 12.30 catch up.
02 Oct 2022
A very easy walk, but the falls are now nearly impossible to see from the lookout due to growth. I did scramble down the falls a bit for a better look (not much luck) and enjoyed this snap of a small cascade above the main falls ...
This was a short and pleasant walk (albeit windy and cold) and then some fun trying to find some good angles to take a shot of this falls.
28 Nov 2022
Bit longer walk than expected as you can no longer get as far along the road as you used to, but still a lovely walk
30 Nov 2022
It was 12.15, sitting at my desk at work and I had my next meeting at 2pm. I could do it. I think, 27kms and with 5 minutes to spare, I'd made it from the CBD to the falls and back ...
30 Dec 2022
Managed to drive to the start of the walk (river now has a reasonabel crossing). Lookout unsafe, so you have to scramble around to get a view hence wonky angle ... lovely spot though.
31 Dec 2022
It's a short off track walk to this from the swimming spot on the dreaming pools ride, so couldn't resist this one to end the year. To be honest though, it was nicer swimming beneath on the nearby river.
Another 'easy' visit as part of a ride our the dreaming pools loop. If I knew more about the climb to come I may have taken another dip here :).
Couldn't resist the quick trip out to this falls after visiting Ironbark and Echo Falls earlier in the day. A great trifecta to finish the year.
2023 (65 waterfalls visited)
28 Jan 2023
The loop is now washed out, and the track to the bottom of the falls technically closed (though I found it quite safe). The water was crystal clear and I just wish I'd stayed longer for a swim.
After a morning visit to Arm River Falls, I headed here via 'the shortcut' to join a gang of people with babies, dogs and the kitchen sink. Had a lovely swim, but maybe I'll come back when it might be quieter ...
It started raining at 2am, and it was still raining at 9.30am when I started this walk and I almost didn't go ... however so glad I did. An amazing morning visiting a series of beautiful waterfalls and cascades.
29 Jan 2023
Had a great time, exploring around here. Won't say anymore than that.
This one was like a puzzle, couldn't photgraph from above, walked up and around to the other side - still no shot, so finally scambled down to the bottom and got this little peak ... a wonderful game.
Visited as it was on my way home from a walk to the Chasm Falls. Walk is signposted (hand made sign), walk down a 4WD track about 30m then follow pink tapes on the left to the top and bottom of falls. Quite a steep scramble.
04 Feb 2023
Made my way here on a very wet day, which wasn't a good choice. Very slippery area, but definitely worth the effort. Just allow plenty of time to slowly explore.
26 Feb 2023
It's been a few years since i last hiked to these falls, and although the road is a little rougher, the hike and falls are still as good as ever.
The hike in on the old snug tracks is now really over grown and the hike down and up to the falls one of the steepest I've ever done ... but wow was it worth it.
12 Mar 2023
A quick visit to Lovers Falls as part of a four day kayaking and hiking trip. Well worth a quick visit.
19 Mar 2023
Had a morning to spare, so despite expected low levels decided to go down to the Tasman for a quick visit to the waterfalls around Waterfall Bay ...
Really wasn't expecting much after seeing the water going into the ocean, but was pleasantly surprised ...
There is actually a good track on the southern side of the river all the way to this falls. I tried following it down further, but was persuaded to go back after an encounter with a very large tiger snake.
25 Mar 2023
The falls were nice, but the walk in was the best. Absolute magical little river to follow and now lots of red tape and very well worn track (although two other parties that I met on the wlak had both got lost, so what would I know).
06 May 2023
With no water in the lower part of the creek, I was happy to see anything at this falls. It has two tiers. The higher, taller tier is less interesting. This pic is the lower tier.
I thought this would be an easy 2(ish) hour trip, but under-estimated the track in, climb down and then just the time it would take to walk up and down the creek. Great walk and definitely worth it.
14 May 2023
Despite ListMap showing this track as closed, it is very open and easy to walk and a lovely walk in at that. Only shame was that the sun couldn't get high enough for a good photo.
21 May 2023
Not really sure I can claim this one as the water flow was a trickle at best. Plan to come back when there's more flow.
27 May 2023
A womderful and amazing walk with massive trees, colourful funghi and finishing up at a gorgeous waterfall, Do the loop - worth it.
Slow walk in on this one, not helped by putting my hand right into a stinging nettle. Waterfall very hard to photograph.
Active logging at the start of the walk made it very tricky underfoot, then it is a steep descent (as advertised) but oh so worth it ... one of the prettiest waterfalls in Tassie I reckon.
03 Jun 2023
Was planning on heading out to Bastion Falls, but the area was closed due to deer cull, so headed here instead. I found the track much easier walking than the trail notes suggest.
Well this was a disaster. Not only was there no water, I took a bad fall climbing down to the waterfall and (a week later) still can't fully use my left hand. Still, a lovely walk otherwise. Followed the stream bed back upstream.
There were actually four significant waterfalls along this walk (and it really does get harder towards the end). The last falls which is officially lobster falls seemed one of the least impressive to me ...
04 Jun 2023
The car told me it was -3 degrees as I drove out to this walk this morning. A lovely way to start the day before heading back to Westbury for breakfast.
I walked down to Upper Liffey Falls from the top of the pass and it was a great choice. Only took 30 minutes (maybe less) and was fairly easy to follow track if careful with navigation. The waterfall was surrounded by ice crystals.
So started the day in Deloraine, and ended in Hobart - via Ouse. Hard falls to get a good view, but managed to clamber around to a spot which I was happy with.
I was only expected a small little fall, so this tri flow fall was a real pleasure and surprise. The walk into the falls was pretty easy to navigate both in and out even though it was off track.
11 Jun 2023
Finally found the track down to Cumberland Falls, and it was a doozy. Amazing Flow.
Only got the tourists view from the top, will need to come back for a proper visit to the base when there is a little less flow ...
12 Jun 2023
Must be my 5th or 6th time to this waterfall, but this is the best flow I've seen so far.
The climb down from the track is steep, but so worth it.
Lots of up and downs to get to this fall, and to be honest I preferred the other unnamed fall further down Frazer Creek just above the Montezuma Track
13 Jun 2023
I left my car in the complete dark, so had to wait for some light for this one. A lovely and easily accesible falls, but not where it is shown on the website.
Lots of low mist this morning and no where to put my mini tripod, made this a very hard falls to photgraph. New gorilla tripod ordered.
If you park at the visitors centre, then you pass this cascade as you walk along the road to Knyvet and Pencil Pine Falls walk.
Wasn't expecting much from this fall, but the track was easy and recently cleared and the falls itself was quite gorgeous.
Drove down to the start of this ride and scooted in on the ebike which made it very easy. The last scramble down is steep, but pretty easy if you find the track (20 m before the bridge)
Track in is no longer clear, and pretty exposed towards the end. But never really hard and definitely worth it.
Almost didn't leave the road, but then decided to try my luck in the blackberries and found it to be a surprisingly easy walk (even in shorts) to the base of the falls if you go the right way.
23 Jul 2023
A nice drive, and short walk ... but all for nothing. I'll watch the rainfall more closely next time.
Been here a few times, and never really seen it flowing. Wish I'd brough some food for the abandoned chooks in the car park ...
05 Aug 2023
Really wasn't expecting much from this falls, but there was a great flow and a brief but enjoyable walk to a part of Launceston I'd not visited before.
Waterflows were great (probably too great) for this falls ... pretty good track in now, all taped and pretty obvious.
Such a gorgeous waterfall, and despite taking a dozen or more photos, I didn't really manage to capture it. The return 'loop' is a bit overgrown.
I confess this was a bit of a run to get to this falls before the sun set. Still looked great in the growing dark and glad I made the effort.
12 Aug 2023
I visited the bottom three (maybe four depending on how you count them) tiers. Hade to wade through the creek a bit for the last falls, but so, so worth it. Gorgeous series of waterfalls. Loved it.
I really enjoyed the walk through the forest and along the cliff tops, but the view of the falls themselves isn't that great. Would like to come back and see if I can get down below.
09 Sep 2023
Did the short walk into the lookout at the base of the falls and back ...
23 Sep 2023
Not a very impressive falls, but a nice prelude to what is further up the stream
Despite two falls on my way up here, it was a magical place to go and explore. Definite favourite.
22 Oct 2023
Having sen Slippery Falls from Pelverata Falls so many times, I was curious to walk to the top and see it back the other way ...
26 Oct 2023
A pleasant walk around the circuit, but not much water unfortunately ...
I ended up walking a few hundred (slow) metres further downstream searching for where this marker is shown on waterfallsoftasmania. It was a nice walk ... nicer than the falls.
There has been a big tree come down just at the base of the cascades recently which made this interesting.
I think I went here the new way (missed an old track which may have a lot less climbing) but overall a bit disappointed (again) with the low water levels.
Really liked this little waterfall at the end of the Castra Circuit.
I tried to get to this falls via the gps route on waterfallsoftasmania and that was a disaster, but then found the very easy track down further down the road. Magical place to explore.
Not realising this fall was here until I got to the top of Lower Preston Falls, I'd come only in with very poor shoes which made it an interesting walk up the river. Worth it though and pretty easy in the end.
almost didn't go to the bottom of these falls, and wouldn't that have been a shame. Little bit of effort finding your way down, but well worth it.
27 Oct 2023
Nice drive there via backoads, then lots of stairs. Maybe would have grabbed me if there was more water, but felt like a come, take photo, leave type of falls.
Great little walk in, though a bit of a scramble to get to a spot where I could take a photo. Would have been easier to cross the creek at the top of the falls and come down the other side. Photo doesn't do this falls justice.
What a great walk. After visiting so many falls with low water levels, hit this one at the perfect water level to get to the base and take some shots. Magic, magic place.
Long drive, and had to cut through three trees (with a handsaw) just to get to the start of this walk. Pleasant place, but would be better with more water.
