  • Pleasant short walk to Nelson Falls. One of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks. WC at the start. Makes a pleasant stop off point to Derwent Bridge from Queenstown direction or vice versa. Obviously no refreshments, bring your own if required.
  • Pretty falls, much more water coming down when we were there than in the photos I'd seen - probably because it hasn't stopped raining for a week! Definitely worth the small walk.
  • Lovely falls and quaint forest area. Easy 10 mins walk from highway
  • What a beautiful place scenery and falls magical don't drive pass as so worth the stop
  • Beautiful walk, no steps no difficulty with a great view at the end, the fall is breathtaking. Highly recommended
