Signs leading to the car park are very misleading. 4wd ahead, but unclear as to where the non 4wd entrance was. Anyway once found (it’s gravel and only a bit bumpy and uneven) there’s again unclear signs. It’s about 4km to the bridge and falls....More

A very easy return walk along a disused tram way. Walk in, is almost unnoticeable downhill resulting in a very gradual ascent from the falls. Do allow a full 3 hours though because the trailhead advises 4 kilometres one way our walking app put it...More

we had intended to go to Montezuma Falls, but never got there. There was limited information from the sign post on the highway and no real information as to how far it was by initially car and then to walk. To get more visitors, please...More

With toilets at the start of the walk the carpark didn't give any clue to what you would see. The walk was easy going and flat through beautiful rainforest. The whole walk was about 2-3 hours and the falls at the end were a surprise....More

Would recommend this walk in favour of Cradle Mtn/Dove Lake walk. Follow the old mining tram track through dense rainforest to the highest falls in Tasmania. 3 hour return walk offers SOOOO much more in scenery value than Cradle Mtn.

Nice easy walk to the falls and suspension bridge, it’ll take you about 60-90 mins to walk to the falls. If you’re after a bit of exercise this is good, not challenging at all.

It's nearly a 3hr round trip, if you're up for a good easy walk. The falls are worth seeing and the suspension bridge is great too. Make sure to bring water!

A delightful 5km (approx), mostly shaded walk To Montezuma Falls, which drop 104 metres to the rocks below. The walk is along an old rail track with remnants of old sleepers still visible in places, the gradient is easy. Along the way you can glimpse...More

Easy walk but quite long compared to some other waterfalls nearby. Amazing waterfall although the size makes it difficult to photograph. Should be viewed in real life to soak in the massive power of this huge waterfall.

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 :)
