About Lilydale Falls

Lilydale Falls comprises of two waterfalls a short walking distance from each other, in the Lilydale Falls Reserve. Approximately 2km's outside of the township of Lilydale, and an easy 25 minute drive from the city of Launceston, Lilydale Falls is easily accessible by people of all ages and fitness levels.

The first waterfall is a 6 - 10 minute walk from the carpark, and via a well maintained path, followed by a staircase that takes you directly to the base of the waterfall. The Second waterfall is another 3 minutes walk away, and the view of the waterfall is seen from a platform.  

Lilydale Falls Reserve

Lilydale Falls Reserve is a popular spot for tourists travelling with motor-homes, or for campers, due to the facilities provided on site. Public toilets, sheltered barbeque areas, as well as a children's playground make Lilydale Falls a great place to camp, and to visit.
