About Strickland Falls

Situated just off Strickland Avenue in South Hobart, Strickland Falls is a small waterfall on the Hobart Rivulet, a short 10 minute drive from central Hobart. Strickland Falls is small in size, being no more than 4 metres in height, with a few smaller cascades a little further upstream.

Though the waterfall is a very short walk, care should be taken on the track, especially in muddy conditions. The track (if you can call it that), is slippery, and is difficult to negotiate in places. None the less, Strickland Falls is a popular destination for photographers due to its location within the foothills of Mt Wellington, it's lovely surroundings, and the picturesque flow of water that drops from the falls.

Although Strickland Falls is not on any of the many hiking tracks that are accessible around Mt Wellington, you can easily walk from Strickland Falls to O'Gradys Falls by walking a little further up Strickland Avenue, and walking towards Mt Wellington along a Fire Trail, that will lead you directly to O'Gradys Falls Track, and the Betts Vale Track, that will guide you to O'Grady's Falls.
