Evercreech Falls is located in Evercreech Forest Reserve, north of Mathinna Tasmania, in fabulous forest surrounds. Situated on the Evercreech Rivulet, The waterfall itself is a gentle waterfall that cascades down a steep slope, before dropping approximately 3 - 5 metres below. Your hike to the falls will end at the base of Evercreech Falls, surrounded by an intimate natural ampitheatre of Tasmanian rainforest.

Evercreech Falls is relatively close to Mathinna Falls, and could easily be combined into a wonderful day of hiking and exploring!

Hiking at Evercreech Forest Reserve

Evercreech Forest Reserve has two hikes, with the waterfall hike being a 40 minute return loop to Evercreech Falls. This hike is relatively easy, but slippery in parts. For fungi enthusiasts, the area is a magnificent haven for different varieties of fungi.

The hike itself is on a typical bush track, that meanders along side of Evercreech Rivulet, until you reach the waterfalls. Due to the track being a loop, there are two places where you can begin your hike to the waterfall. The first hike entrance, which is directly opposite the Barbeque area of the Reserve, takes you directly to the waterfall along side the rivulet. The second access to the waterfall, which is about 100 metres past the barbeque area, will require wading through the rivulet by foot. If you do not wish to get your feet wet, follow the path directly opposite the barbeque area, and return on the same track.

The second hike is known as 'The White Knights', and is named due to the huge white gum trees that are over 90 metres tall. A short walk of 5 minutes from the barbeque area will take you to a viewing platform to see the splendor of these giant trees. The walk continues through the forest and loops back to the carpark.

One interesting fact about the Evercreech walks is one side of the rivulet is beautiful wet rainforest, where as the other side (the side the White Gums are situated), is dry forest!
