Discover a beautiful temperate rainforest trail and one of Tasmania’s Great Short Walks within the Liffey Falls State Reserve; the Liffey Falls Walk is a 1 mi out-and-back trail that starts and ends at the Upper Liffey Falls Car Park, Tasmania.
Graded as Easy to Medium difficulty, it’s considered a family-friendly short trail and is reasonably level and a well-maintained forest path, with multiple stunning cascades to see on route, perfect for all ages and abilities. (For information on how we grade trails, please click here.)
Usually, the trail is completed in around 45 mins, although caution is advised on trail times as this depends on multiple variables. For more info, click here.
A fantastic short hike, especially for children, the wild walk through the fern and moss-covered rainforest with soaring eucalypts is beautiful and the falls themselves are always impressive, more so after recent rainfall. Enjoy a picnic at the start or end of your walk or even a dip in the chilly waters on a warm day.
The Upper car park offers picnic facilities and wheelchair-accessible toilets. Whereas the Lower Liffey Falls Car Park has fewer facilities, from here you can choose a longer trail to the Liffey Falls, have access to toilets and a free campground for those looking to extend their adventure.
Dogs and bikes are not permitted on the trails for the protection of the reserve and its wildlife.
