About North Fork Many Falls Creek Falls

Access to Rainbow Falls on Many Falls Creek is made possible by a gully on its northern side through which an unnamed creek (North Fork Creek) flows. This creek is set in dense, hard to navigate rainforest, but features a number of gorgeous mossy waterfalls. The unnoficially named North Fork Many Falls Creek Falls - granted not the smoothest title - is situated where the creek tumbles over three nice drops in quick sucession. The falls features a 7-8 metre upper cascade, followed by an impressive 10 metre plunge, with a final 5 metre drop immediately below. The area around the waterfalls is the most challenging section of the hike towards Many Falls Creek, with incredibly unstable ground and cliffs to negotiate. Extreme care must be taken; a fall here may not be deadly, but a rescue would be near impossible in the dense bush. 

As well as the main three-tiered falls, there are several other nice waterfalls on North Fork Creek over the course of its descent to Many Falls Creek. They are all really just a bonus to the spectacular Rainbow Falls though, which is the real reason to attempt a trip into this wild and rugged area. It can not be understated that this is an area with no tracks, and very few people have completed this trip. It should only be attempted by well-prepared, experienced hikers who know how to navigate rough off track areas in Tasmania.
