The falls are quite a way from anywhere! But once there you forget about the long drive! You have to walk about 15 minutes to get to the bottom. And it’s quite steep. I was dreading the walk back but it was surprisingly easy! Nice...More

Quite a nice and high waterfall, located in a reserve with the same name. Easy to find and ample parking on the road. Just a short walk and you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of the falls.

The walk down is quite steep in parts but is manageable and mostly shaded. There are a couple of spots for viewing the falls on the way down but mostly they are obscured by foliage. We went in the afternoon and the sun was in...More

Definitely a must see when staying at St. Helens. Loved the way the falls split and rejoin several times. So many nearby attractions too such as Halls Falls, Pyengana Cheese factory, Pub in a Paddock and Shop in the Bush. Don't miss any of them.

Wasn't flowing too bad when we called in but would have been awesome after the spectacular rains that fell shortly after we were there that caused so much damage throughout Tassie. And a very attractive walk down, though a little strenuous walking back up, but...More

Enjoyed a very easy walk into the falls through the lovely bushland. The falls had plenty of water flowing over the rocks but could image during a rainy day how spectacular they would be.

We travelled from St Helen’s to see these falls on the recommendation of a friend. Was so very worth it. It is an easy 15-20 minute walk down to the viewing area through rainforest. My elderly mother managed the walk. Looking up, The walls are...More

Great side trip on the way back from a mountain bike ride. The falls were great and worth the detour, the walk down through the ferns was also excellent, although I had just been spoilt with the Blue Tier MTB ride which was amazing!

Hi....sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I don't think that it would be suitable for a wheelchair to the falls as it is a little steep in some areas, and from memory a few steps along the way as well. Coming back... More
