Situated a few hundred metres from the Murchison Highway (A10), and a short drive from Waratah, Wandle Falls is more of a cascade than a waterfall, having a small drop of possibly 2 - 3 metres.  

Access to Wandle Falls (which is on private property) is via Murchison Highway (A10), however, there are no signs to indicate a waterfall is near by. Thankfully the waterfall is situated close to the highway and you only need to park your car the moment you see the bridge crossing Wandle Creek. Once parked, walk 50 metres north of the bridge, where you should see a fence pole, with a pink ribbon attached to it (and a yellow cap as well).

The marker is the entry point for your walk, and once inside the forest, pink ribbons will lead you directly to the waterfall.  The walk takes between 5 to 10 minutes in total.

Previously, the owners of the land allowed people to access this waterfall, and a sign near the bridge requested people to call the land owners for permission. The name of land owners and their phone numbers are not provided by Waterfalls of Tasmania, and it is your responsibility to seek permission to see this waterfall.
