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.

I dropped here on the way from Cradle Mountain to Launceston. This was listed as a popular attraction so I assumed it would be a built up road. Passing Deloraine until the Riversdale road was fine... more »
Liffey Falls is a magical place in a beautiful part of the world. A bit if a steep walk through a glorious rainforest with simply huge tree ferns, downhill most of the way there from the carpark, but.... more »

The cascading falls at waterfalls are a wonderful experience. If you're on for some adventure take the detour to Liffey Falls from the highway. The 6km stretch of gravel road is nice and winds down to a narrow road for the last 1km. There's a 20min short walk to the waterfalls from car park. There's also a camping ground about 1.5 hours from the Falls.
Lower liffey falls camping area was a disgraceful mess yesterday. The one sole toilet wasn't flushing and was broken and it seemed like it hadn't function at all this week judging by the toilet paper strewn in small deposits around the bushes of the campground. The walk is a must too see a marvelous environment ..
Beautiful walk into the falls. The water crystal clear and really nice for a dip in a boiling hot day
Very beautiful waterfall but note that you have to walk 3KM to the waterfall to actually see them. The road is closed giving to disabled access.
Spectacular cascade of waterfalls. Lovely comfortable walk and beautiful picnic and toilet facilities. A must see and one of the 60 short walks of Tasmania
