This is an easy 75 minute walk in some of the most beautiful wilderness that I've seen. The walk follows the old tramline from Williamsford to the falls. The more adventurous can do the full walk to Melba Flats :)

It took us about 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to the falls. There are parts of the walk that were very muddy so be prepared. It is shady basically all the way. For quite a while you can hear the river below but as you get closer to the falls you walk away from it and cannot hear... More

You can reach the waterfall from two directions, one by car and the other a reasonably long trek, depending on your preference. It being a wild area you will see untouched rainforest and unknown flora - an interesting adventure for Naturalists.

We visited several waterfalls in Tasmania, this one was easily the best. The hike is easy along the old rail bed and there are things to see on the way (flowers, small falls, rivers). It was quiet. The falls are spectacular and the wire bridge crossing is very cool. There is no swimming here. Bicycle accessible. We ended up spending... More

When I first looked at walking to the falls I was slightly dubious but the walk is a nice steady incline that you don't feel, chuck on a pair of good runners and the walk is nothing. You hardly feel like you have spent 1.5hrs walking to the falls. Once you get there you know the reason why you walked... More

This is a free, easy, level walk which we took after a couple of rainy days so the falls were full. We saw a few people on our way there/back but had the falls to ourselves which was a real treat!

This waterfall is probably a much better spectacle with some recent rainfall. It can underwhelm without the water. The walk is nice, can also be quite wet so good shoes are in order. Take your time with this one, it is much better enjoyed at a leisurely stroll, pay attention to some old mine relics along the way. Tips: -... More

In total the walk to and from the waterfall is 9.6 Km. It is through a cool rainforest and is on even ground, so it is an easy hike. The test to the nerves is walking across the gorge on an extremely narrow bridge in order to view the falls in all it's glory. For those who do not venture... More

It's an interesting historical walk...although it's a bit long (it said 2 hours, but took us maybe 2.5hours). Easy walk though and interesting really when you find some hint of the old train tracks on the way. It's a return walk, but never feel bored. The fall... its magnificent. if you had an iPhone make sure you take a slow-mo... More

It is a long walk, it took us 2 hours but we walk quite quickly and looking at the reviews most people allow 3 hours. The path is wide and flat but still a good idea to wear sturdy shoes. It had been raining when we went so there were a number of puddles and muddy patches to manoeuvre around.... More
