About Evercreech Falls
Evercreech Falls was really our waterfalling excuse to see the impressive White Knights, which were said to be the tallest white gum trees in the world. Julie and I were able to combine a visit to this diminutive 5-7m falls with another short walk to the giant trees, and both tracks started from the same picnic and car park area (see directions below). Going into this visit, we didn’t even know about the White Knights, but after coming here, we came to realize that the waterfall really was a side attraction to the impressive trees of the Evercreech Forest Reserve themselves. That said, if it wasn’t for the falls, we might not have seen the big trees at all! And it further affirmed our belief that waterfall-themed travel was the best way to go globetrotting for it yielded unexpected surprises like this one!
The walk to Evercreech Falls involved doing a loop track. Both ends of the track branched off in separate directions from the car park, and we walked in a clockwise direction. Although the walk was mostly easy, we did have to scramble around a big tree that had fallen right onto the track. But other than that, it took us about 60 minutes to finish the loop. The Evercreech Rivulet was the main watercourse that the trail passed by, but the falls was on a tributary feeding it. Thus, the waterfall’s volume was quite small compared to the more substantial Evercreech Rivulet.
Prior to doing the longer loop walk, we also took the other walk to the White Knights. It only required us to walk about 5 minutes out-and-back to see the White Knights from below. However, we also extended the walk slightly towards some more lookout platforms that were more elevated. We could have continued the walk into a much longer loop that would have taken us 20-30 minutes, but it was getting late in the day for us so we were content to just be around the main highlights of this walk.
Overall, Julie and I spent about 1 hour 15 minutes away from the car. This encompassed both the White Knights visit as well as the longer waterfall loop track. It was a great way to cap off a very long day of touring Tasmania’s East and North East regions.
We’ll pick up the driving directions from the Mathinna Rd (B43) turnoff from the Ersk Highway (A4) at the town of Mathinna. To get to Mathinna, follow the directions given on the Mathinna Falls page. Mathinna was 79km (90 minutes drive) east of Launceston and 86km (over an hour drive) northwest of Bicheno.
Once on the Mathinna Rd, take it for about 20km north until you reach a fork. Turn right at this fork and follow this unsealed road to the car park and picnic area.
I believe there were other access roads to get to the Mathinna Falls Forest Reserve from Fingal or Ringarooma, but we didn’t really do them so I won’t say any more about those.
