Situated in the Hartz Mountains National Park is Arve Falls. A popular picnic area, you are greeted by a large visitor shelter, toilets, barbeques, chairs and tables.
The well formed and easy to follow track to Arve Falls heads along the small ridge through low trees. The track drops slightly before coming to several flights of stairs leading down to a lookout above the falls.
Educational signs are along the track explaining the various vegetation. The Hartz Mountains National Park was included in the Tasmanian World Heritage Area in 1989.
* The Geeves family (who founded Geeveston) cut the first track through the Hartz Mountains towards Federation Peak. While returning from prospecting in November of 1897, Osbourne Geeves, his 3 sons and a nephew were confronted with a strong snow storm. One son and his nephew died of exposure. A memorial is located where they perished.
