About Lost Falls

Lost Falls is a seasonal waterfall situated near Lake Leake, Tasmania, on Lost Falls Creek, a creek that is often dry, relying on heavy rains and snow meltage to come to life.

The walk will take you to a viewing platform that is situated above Lost Falls, looking down into the valley which Lost Falls flows.  Another 5 minutes walk back towards the carpark area is another track that takes you to rock pools.  The rock pools, much like Lost Falls itself, are reliant on rainfall and snow for its source of water, and can vary dramatically with seasonal fluctuations.

If this waterfall is ever lost (hence it's name), a short 15km drive north will take you to the impressive Meetus Falls.
