Liffey Falls, Deloraine

4.5
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Deloraine
Part of Tasmania’s enormous World Heritage Wilderness Area, Liffey Falls is believed to have been used as an aboriginal meeting place for many centuries. Located inside a protected nature reserve, noted for cool rain forests teeming with diverse plant and animal life, the waterfall is a popular picnic spot for visitors and locals. The area offers numerous photo opportunities, as well as a number of nature walks leading into the forests of huge eucalyptus and fern trees. As you walk through the area, stop by several smaller waterfalls, all of which are easily accessible. Don’t forget to bring your camera, and be sure to wear comfortable shoes and fairly warm clothes as temperatures can drop relatively quickly inside the forested areas.

  • Quite a bit of a drive on a gravel road, narrow in parts, to get to these falls. About a 15 minute easy walk to the falls through beautiful manferns. Large logs lodged in the falls and at the base. Co...  more »
  • We enjoyed the Liffey Falls. The gravel road in and put is quite narrpw and winding but luckily we had no problem. The walk to the Falls is fairly easy going down but quite a lot steeper going back. H...  more »
  • You either arrive at Liffey the "back way" through Liffey or off the A5 highway. If you're adventurous - take the back roads just look out for log trucks! Once you arrive at Liffey it can seem like a ...  more »

  • Lovely place to visit with a number of falls to view along the well maintained and marked path. Access from Riversdale Rd is the shortest and most direct walking path, however the road narrow and has a number of tight hairpin bends.
  • Well worth the drive to visit it. Beautiful walks under the canopy of tree ferns and beech myrtle trees. Very fine specimens of some sort of wood fungus growing out of the sides of rotting tree trunks. Walking stick would be useful for less agile as the ground is rather uneven in many places.
  • The most magical place I have ever been to. The drive is tricky, on a dirt road and very windy. However it is extremely beautiful. The return walk is advertised as 45 minutes and this is pretty accurate. They say level 2 gradient and I definitely would recommend you sit this walk out if you have knee problems. Such a pristine, untouched rainforest feel. Toilets 🚻 available and parking 🅿️ available.
  • If you have a car (preferably a 4WD, AWD, or tank) Liffey Falls is for you ! While the combination of dirt and gravel roads to get there is quite treacherous, the view and smell of fresh air at the falls is worth it. Although the water level in the falls depends on the time of year you go, its a beautiful place year round.
  • We didn't even get there because the road was so rough! No signs to say what tyoe of vehicle you needed until the last four kilometres and it was too rough for us!
