Situated on Redwater Creek, Redwater Creek Falls is a small waterfall that comes to life after heavy rains.  Being a seasonal waterfall, which is typical for creeks, Redwater Creek Falls can often have little to no water flowing. 

Access to the waterfall is along a section of the Tasmanian Trail, adjacent to Redwater Creek, between Railton and Sheffield. Access to the Tasmanian Trail is from Sheffield Road, between Railton and Sheffield, but is unmarked. It runs alongside Mt Romani and is the first entrance into the bush from Sheffield side. Drive along about 750 metres until you reach a locked boom gate.

The Walk

The walk to Redwater Creek Falls is approximately 1.3 kilometres. Along the Tasmanian Trail you will come across a sign saying only Tasmanian Trail users allowed. Keep walking approximately 1 kilometre until you reach another closed gate. Walk through the passenger gate. Along the track, you will see evidence of stone walls of the railway history. The Falls are on your right through another passenger gate and the trail becomes a bush track.

The track suffers from some erosion, especially close to the waterfalls, so care must be taken. At the time of writing (April 2015), a sink hole had developed on the path.  After walking down to the bottom of the Falls, follow the track around the bend and you'll find another smaller Falls.
