About Montana Falls

Situated on Western Creek, Montana Falls is a wide by not very tall waterfall accessible from Long Ridge Regional Reserve on Leonards Road in Montana (near Deloraine in northern Tasmania). It is somewhat a seasonal waterfall, best viewed between July and October when rainfall and snowfall is optimal in this region, though it does retain some water year round.

Private Property nearby

Although access to the waterfall is in a Regional Reserve (which is public property), the other side of the creek is private property. Under no circumstances should the river be crossed.

The yellow areas are Private Property.  The brownish area is the Regional Reserve.

Access to Montana Falls begins from a 4WD track adjacent to a sign that says "Long Ridge Regional Reserve", along with a newly placed sign pointing to the waterfall itself. There are some potentially confusing side trails that lead off as you make your way along the track, but orange triangle markers point the way to go, so it's difficult to get lost. Eventually a side trail branches off the 4WD track which takes you down to the main section of the falls, which can already be seen through the trees. The 4WD track keeps going a little further on before reaching another well marked side track that leads to a series of small cascades known as the Montana Cascades.

Allow about 1 to 1.5 hours return to view and enjoy Montana Falls and Montana Cascades.
