St. Columba Falls is one of Tasmania's tallest waterfalls, with a waterfall drop of over 90 metres. Situated approximately 30km's west of St. Helens, with easy access from the A3 Highway, with a turn off to Pyengana, St. Columba Falls is one of Tasmania's favourite waterfalls to visit
St. Columba Falls is part of the St Columba Falls State Reserve, featuring a picnic and toilet facilities, with somewhat limited parking along the road. The track from the carpark to the falls is well maintained, but is a steady climb back from the base of the falls to the carpark.
* George and Margaret Cotton settled here in 1875 with their 9 children, naming their property St Columba after a Gaelic Irish missionary monk who preached Christianity among the Picts.
