Arm Falls, also known as Arm River Falls, is situated on Arm River, south of Lake Parangana, near Liena. From the Forest Education Centre, situated in the Arm River Forest Reserve, the tracks are clearly marked guiding you to the waterfall. Arm Falls is situated on Arm River Falls Circuit, with the loop walk providing a wonderful bush walk through lovely forest, with great photographic opportunities of creeks that eventually flow into Arm River.

Arm Falls is impressive, especially after consistent rainfall. On first impressions the height of Arm Falls is higher than photos suggest. The track takes you some 30 or 40 metres from the waterfall, with natural rock formations to view the waterfall comfortably

How To Get to Arm Falls

Access to Arm Falls is via Mole Creek, and south along Mersey Forest Road. The road is sealed most of the way, but becomes unsealed south of the bridge. From there, continue approximately 300 metres and turn right onto Maggs Rd. Signage in the area will direct you into the Arm River Forest Reserve.
