The unofficially named "Not the Minnow Falls" is a very long single drop waterfall with height estimates ranging from 120-150 metres, making it one of, if not the tallest single drop waterfall in Tasmania. The falls are very seasonal, hence why they wouldn't have an official name, and only flow after recent rain. The name of the falls stems from confusion between it and nearby Minnow Falls, with the name coming from clarification that it is not the real Minnow Falls. 

When its flowing, Not the Minnow Falls can be viewed distantly from a number of roads in the region, from as far away as Mole Creek, but the best views are from the Falls Lookout on Bottom Road 1 near the start of the new track to Minnow Falls, as well as from the old Minnow Falls Track itself. It may also be possible to scramble closer to the base of the waterfall, but this would be a tough mission as there is no track at all leading towards it. 

Finally, a good zoom lens is necessary to photograph the falls clearly. The photo on this page was taken with a 55mm zoom from the Falls Lookout on Bottom Road 1, which is nowhere near enough to take a good photo.
