Situated in North-East Tasmania, Harridge Falls is a pretty waterfall that is a short 10 minute walk from the road. Embedded in lush forest, Harridge Falls is multi-tiered flowing along Weld River with a height of about 5 metres. Though it is not tall, it is picturesque, making it an ideal waterfall to visit if you're an avid waterfall bagger.

Access to Harridge Falls

An easy drive down the A3 Tasman Highway will take you to the Harridge Falls area. There is no signage on the road, nor is there proper access for vehicles. However there is a 4WD track off the road, as well as some room to park one vehicle. There is no walking track or viewing platforms either. To get to the waterfall, you will have to walk down a slope meandering through the forest. Previous hikers have placed pink ribbons on trees to help guide you in and out. The fact the waterfall is only 200 metres from the road, it is easy to find should you lose sight of the ribbons.

Despite the relative ease of the hike to the waterfall from the road, you will need to plan this trip, ensuring you know where to park your vehicle, as well as knowing where to commence your hike. A GPS and / or topography maps are highly recommended.
