Walls of Jerusalem National Park, Tasmania
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 following a hike of a minimum of 4 hours.
Situated on the north-east side of Walls of Jerusalem National Park, your walk begins from Little Fisher Road, where flood damage has caused a section of the road to sink. At this point start your hike. For about 1 hour you will be walking on an old road to where the carpark area used to be, about 1 hour by foot. 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. (Do not forget to sign the log book again when departing the National Park).
Once past the old carpark 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 many places, and difficult to follow in plaves, however pink ribbons and occasional reflective arrows are scattered along the path 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.
