Without doubt, Rinadena Falls is one of Tasmania's best kept secrets. This stunning waterfall is encased in gorgeous World Heritage protected Forest, and is the reward you receive after approximately 2 hours of walking.

Situated on the north-east side of Walls of Jerusalem National Park, your walk begins from Little Fisher Road . In 2019, a new car parking area was built alongside the road and can easily hold 5 vehicles. Your hike starts at this point, and the first hour of your hike is along the old road. At one stage in 2018 the road was covered with many fallen trees, but was completely cleared in 2019. Along the way, you will see signs welcoming you to the Walls of Jerusalem National Park. Nearby, is a box that contains a log book, where you should record your details, and your hiking intentions.

Once past the old car park area, your hike takes you southwards adjacent Little Fisher River. Much of the walk is uphill, resulting in many delightful cascades, and picturesque forest scenery. The track has become overgrown in some places, and difficult to follow in sections. However pink ribbons (and occasional reflective arrows) are scattered along the track to help direct you. It is highly recommended you carry a GPS with you, recording your hike, in case you need to back-track.

Rinadena Falls is seasonal, and is best scene between July and November. Water flows can diminish quite dramatically over the summer months.
