About Snug Falls

In Tasmania's south is the popular Snug Falls, a gorgeous high waterfall on Snug River. The river flows easterly, commencing from Morrison Hill, with other waterways flowing into Snug River before reaching the waterfall. These tributaries provide good flow of water almost all year round, almost guaranteeing a good visit to Snug Falls any time of the year.

Road access to the waterfall is on Snug Falls Rd, an excellent unsealed road that stems from Snug Tiers Rd. There's plenty of car parking in and around the start of the track, with excellent signage in the area to indicate the start of the track, and the way to progress to the falls.

The track is signed as a 2.1km walk to the falls, and steadily descends to the base of the waterfall. The track itself isn't the easiest to walk on, being slippery underfoot, and rough in many places. After heavy rain or snow, the track is very muddy as well, so care should be taken. Once at the base of Snug Falls, you will be greeted with an enchanting large waterfall, that drops into a narrow gorge like amphitheatre. 

For photographers, there are many angles and photographic opportunities at this unique and beautiful region of Tasmania.

This track is also Dog Friendly provided dogs are kept on a leash
