About Reggies Falls

The Mt Roland Regional reserve near Sheffield in northern Tasmania provides many hiking opportunities, one of which is a walk to Reggies Falls.

Reggies Falls is a large waterfall that flows along O'Neills Creek, but is really only worth seeing after heavy rainfall, or heavy snow fall. At 920 metres above sea level it is considered alpine, and hikers are advised to take adequate clothing should the weather suddenly turn.  The area is prone to snow and really cold conditions anytime of the year.

A visit to Reggies Falls is an excellent side trip if you are planning to climb to the summit of Mt Roland. The quickest way to visit the waterfall is to drive down O'Neills Road at the small village of Gowrie Park.  Along the road, car parking is available, and at the start of the track is a registration booth to record your hiking intentions. The first leg of your hike is along Mount Van Dyke Track which is a very wide and rocky track that is easy to walk along. Walk along the track for about 1km until you reach a branch in the track.  The left hand branch is the Roland Track which needs to be taken. The Roland Track is a steady and constant uphill walk and winds its way around the foothills of Mount Vandyke towards Mr Roland. Along the way you will pass a number of small creeks which are quite pretty after rainfall as well.

The track is excellent and wide, but does change suddenly when the track crosses O'Neills creek. Once you cross the creek, the track narrows and becomes steeper, At this point, you need to walk approximately 600 metres uphill until you see some ribbon tied to trees on the right hand side (southern side) of the track. For reference, the ribbons are about 200 metres before you reach the next junction of the track.  If you reach the junction, turn back.

The ribbons mark the side trip necessary to view the waterfall, and following the ribbons will guide you easily to an area where you can sit and enjoy Reggies Falls.  The waterfall is large, approximately 40 metres in height. The area where you view the waterfall also boasts vista views of the valley below the waterfall.
