  • Easy walk but quite long compared to some other waterfalls nearby. Amazing waterfall although the size makes it difficult to photograph. Should be viewed in real life to soak in the massive power of t...  more »
  • This is an easy 75 minute walk in some of the most beautiful wilderness that I've seen. The walk follows the old tramline from Williamsford to the falls. The more adventurous can do the full walk to M...  more »
  • It took us about 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to the falls. There are parts of the walk that were very muddy so be prepared. It is shady basically all the way. For quite a while you can hear the river...  more »

  • I am very spoiled with mighty waterfalls so I did not expect much, but this turned out to be quite impressive. Also, to get the best view you can enter a somewhat unstable iron rope bridge that really adds to the experience
  • The falls are nice and we enjoyed the rainforest walk however 3 hours round trip for this is not the best use of your time. There a 4x4 access - worths it if it makes the walk significantly shorter.
  • Make it 5 star. Several approach roads before the hike. One suitable for 4 wheel drive, the other 2 wheel drive where the Williamsford Road from the highway near Rosebery turns into the Montezuma Fall gravel road for the last bit to the car park. The getting there issue mentioned in the review below will be the 4 wheel drive route approaching from the other end. It is a gravel road for the last bit using the Tasmania Parks 60 Great Short Walks PDF, Walk 27. The hike is a three hour return one from the car park along an old tram track. You will be rewarded with the sight of the falls. A wobbly suspension bridge. Best viewing is from the north end side path from the bridge helpfully marked up with a blob on Openstreet. A snake sunning itself at the start of the walk greeted us.
  • For those planning to drive to the falls, ignore the sign says "allow 1 hour", that is not realistic with the state the track is currently in. From our experience it was over 2 hours on a dry day (with a brief stop to investigate an old mine shaft). Also a 4x4 with generous ground clearance is required, our Pajero with standard suspension and all-terrain tyres scraped its undercarriage on a number of occasions. It's definitely worth the journey if you allow enough time.
  • The falls was beautiful by itself, but if you have seen some impressive one like niagara falls then probably this won't impress you as much. Also if you're a person that doesn't enjoy forest walk for 3 hours (including return), then I won't suggest you undertaking the trip into the forest. There're some areas where you could enjoy a good splash in the stream but there doesn't seem to be a designed place where you could have a picnic or camp. The road in was supposed to be an easy walk but there're many water sources along the path so would highly recommend to wear sth that is water proof if you don't want to get your new pair of walking shoes soaked. The walk itself was a bit too long for us considering there's only a waterfall and a pretty stunning hanging bridge inside.
