Penny Royal Waterfall

The Penny Royal Waterfall really felt more like a mall and amusement park backdrop than a legitimate waterfall attraction. That said, the way the artificial falls was situated, it attractively…

Dip Falls

Dip Falls was a bit of an out-of-the-way excursion as it sat to the far northwest of Tasmania. For a waterfall that required quite the drive to reach, we wondered whether it would be worth the trouble

Waterfall Bay

Waterfall Bay typically referred to a body of water off the east coast of Tasmania on the rugged Tasman Peninsula. For the purposes of this page, I’m also using that term to refer to the 100m…

Horsetail Falls (“Queenstown Falls”)

Before locals had informed me that this waterfall was actually called Horsetail Falls, I made up the name “Queenstown Falls” to refer to this very attractive waterfall that we stumbled upon when we…

Nelson Falls

Nelson Falls was a gorgeous 30m high wall of water shaped like an inverted wine glass. Julie and I were very pleasantly surprised to see this waterfall pumping the way it did on our first visit…

Victoria Valley Falls

Victoria Valley Falls (or just Victoria Falls) was kind of an unfortunate follow up act to Nelson Falls as Julie and I were driving from Queenstown in the west towards Hobart out east…

Russell Falls and Horseshoe Falls

Russell Falls could very well be our favorite waterfall in Tasmania. It was certainly the best known and most popular waterfall that we had visited in the state. In fact it had been said that it…

Lady Barron Falls

Lady Barron Falls was a small cascading waterfall that was kind of away from the commotion of the nearby Russell Falls. We had originally intended to integrate visiting this waterfall…

Montezuma Falls

Montezuma Falls had to have been one of the more impressive and memorable waterfalls that Julie and I had visited in Tasmania. It was definitely up there as one of the best waterfalls we had seen…

Hogarth Falls

Hogarth Falls was our waterfalling excuse to visit the quaint coastal township of Strahan. It was where Botanical Creek fell probably around 5-10m in cumulative height as there were further tiers…

Preston Falls (“Delaneys Falls”)

Preston Falls was an attractive waterfall where the Preston Creek plunged some 25m into a deep gorge. For a waterfall of this size, it was also one of the easiest waterfalls to visit. Julie and I…

Oldaker Falls

Oldaker Falls was essentially an urban waterfall that was the centerpiece of Burnie Park, which itself sat within the city limits of the coastal city of Burnie. It was at the top end of the hilly…

Guide Falls

Guide Falls was one of the more satisfying waterfalls that we encountered in Tasmania. Not only was this an easy waterfall on the eyes with its wide block shape as the Guide River fell around…

Waratah Falls

Waratah Falls was the feature waterfall in the town of Waratah, which was built right above its brink in an area said to have one of the wettest and coldest climates in Tasmania. So perhaps it…

Pencil Pine Falls and Knyvet Falls

Neither Pencil Pine Falls nor Knyvet Falls were waterfalls that we expected to visit prior to our visit to Cradle Mountain National Park. It wasn’t until we noticed some maps in the visitor centre…

Crater Falls

Crater Falls was a series of small cascades and waterfalls where each drop was on the order of 5m to 10m tall though the cumulative height could very well be on the order of more than 30m or so…

Champagne Falls and Bridal Veil Falls

Champagne Falls and Bridal Veil Falls were a pair of attractive waterfalls that we combined into a single excursion that began and ended at the Lemonthyme Lodge Wilderness Retreat. Although each…

St Columba Falls

Julie and I came to St Columba Falls with some expectations given that it was said to be one of Tasmania’s tallest permanent waterfalls at 90m thereby drawing quite a bit of fanfare and literature…

Ralphs Falls

Ralphs Falls was a very tall but thin waterfall dropping 100m over a rugged cliff facing a wide open expanse of farmlands belonging to the community of Ringarooma. We were able to take in the falls…

Lilydale Falls

Lilydale Falls was a pair of quaint but attractive waterfalls that really chilled out Julie and I on each of our visits here (despite these visits occurring in lower-than-average rainfall years)…
