Holwell Gorge State Reserve
The walk to the first waterfall is a little uninspiring as you track through the beginnings of the gorge. However, the walk is relatively short before being graced with Holwell Gorge Falls. The waterfall is approximately 5 to 6 metres in height, and appears to slope at about a 30 degree angle down a rocky slide. Despite it being regarded as a waterfall, it really is just water flowing down a slope. None the less, it is visually pleasing.
The walk to the waterfall (as of May 2015) requires leaving the track to work yourself around fallen trees, and debris from land slides, often result wading through the creek to get yourself back onto the track. It is unlikely that access to the first waterfall would be possible if the creek is in full flow.
Due to the significance of the land slides in the area, as well as the degraded tracks, WaterfallsOfTasmania.com.au endorses the closure of Holwell Groge Stare Reserve.
