About Dip Falls

Dip Falls is situated in a remote region of North-West Tasmania in the Dip River Forest Reserve, along the Dip River. Access to the waterfall is mostly sealed road from the Bass Highway, turning southwards along country roads, with the last few kilometres of unsealed track.

The area around the waterfall has very good barbeque and picnic areas, as well as toilet facilities.  The park is also home to The Big Tree, which is approximately 1km drive from the waterfall parking area itself, and has a pleasant bush walk.

A number of platforms for viewing the different tiers is available, with one platform viewing from the top of the waterfall considered wheel-chair friendly. To reach the base of the waterfall, a 152 step (and rather awkward) staircase is provided, with hand rails.  

Dip river fluctuates in size throughout the year, with the above photo taken during the winter

* In the 1920, the Blackwood Sawmill used to operate here. A short gravel path leads to some relics of an old boiler covered in moss.
