Fairy Falls is a small waterfall in Southern Tasmania,  nestled in idyllic forest, and with its magical setting, it's little wonder how Fairy Falls was named. Fairy Falls has a height of approximately 5 metres, and is canopied by large ferns. It's a beautiful setting in a small space.

Fairy Falls flows on O'Hallorans Creek near Geeveston.  Road access is via Fairy Falls Road, an unsealed road for the most part. There are no signs in the area, no parking areas either. Access to the waterfall is from the southern side of O'Hallorans Creek on the fence line of farmland. The well trodden foot area tracks close to an electric fence, so care must be taken to not electricute yourself. You will walk through patches of button grass that is quite common in this area, and is responsible for the tannin stained water of Fairy Falls and O'Hallorans Creek.  Keep following the creek line for about 400 metres until you reach Fairy Falls.

The area to view the waterfall is very small, and is not suitable for a lot of visitors at once.
