  • Nelson Falls are a 10 minute (easy) walk along a beautiful rain forest track. The walk is worth doing, even without the falls, but the falls are a bonus. The track meanders along the creek banks, with...  more »

  • It's worth a 20 minute stop to walk through the rain forest to photograph Nelson Falls but make sure you visit the falls after Queenstown and Strahan as it is on the road back to Hobart.  more »

  • 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
