The Rocky Cape National Park is a region on the north coast of Tasmania rich in Indigenous cultural history, as well as having spectacular sweeping views of Bass Strait and surrounding regions.  There are many different hikes that can be taken through the park, with many of the tracks intersecting.  One of the destinations worth seeing is Doone Falls.

Doone Falls is situated on Doone Creek, a tannin stained creek flowing through to Bass Strait on the southern side of the National Park.  Doone Falls has a discoloured brownish look to it, and is quite distinct from other Tasmanian waterfalls due to the amount of foam/froth that accumulates at the base of the waterfall.  After heavy rains, the base of falls has a bubble bath look about it.

With a number of different access points to Doone Falls, the quickest walk begins from Sisters Beach.  The hike commences on the Anniversary Bay Circuit track, which can be confusing to find.  Information signs showcasing a map of the region, and information about the region stand directly at the commencement of the track.  Once your walk begins, you will be guided steadily uphill on well maintained tracks, with signage indicating the tracks to follow to reach Doone Falls.  As you near your destination, the last few minutes of your hike will descend steeply, zig-zagging through very pretty Australian bush.  As you reach Doone Falls, take notice of how the creek has a very reddish look about it as it works it way towards the ocean.
