Havelock Falls is a secluded waterfall flowing on Duncansons Rivulet on the central highlands of Tasmania's Great Western Tiers. Just upstream from Havelock Falls is the very impressive Warners Falls, and the hike to Havelock Falls will allow you to see both waterfalls at the same time. Havelock Falls is a lot smaller than Warners Falls, and can only be seen from a distance, high up on the cliff faces of the Central Plateau, about 500 metres from the waterfall. Due to its location deep into a canyon, it is impossible to get close to this waterfall. It is also very difficult to get a clear view of the waterfall.

About the Hike

The hike commences from Pine Lake, walking west along the northern ridges of the Great Western Tiers. There is no hiking track or markers to follow, meaning you have complete freedom to make your own way towards the waterfalls in the west. However, The Central Plateau is not easy to walk on. The Plateau has a lot of mini tarns and mini creeks which cannot be seen until you're within metres of them. It is very easy to step into a tiny creek without even knowing it was there. Care needs to be taken with each step to make sure you're on solid ground. The ground is covered in hardy alpine scrub and bushes, and is quite uneven underfoot. None the less, walking along the northern ridge towards Ritters Crag is the easiest way to walk towards the waterfalls. If you walk towards the waterfalls 400 metres south, the hike is more difficult, with many more mini tarns and mini creeks to negotiate.

About the Region

At over 1200 metres above sea level, you will be experiencing an alpine walk. It is important that hikers carry with them clothing suitable for all weather conditions. The Central Plateau is prone to high winds, rain, snow, and sleet at all times of the year, and it is advisable that hikers are well prepared for their hike, and choose a day when the weather is entirely favourable.
