Jade Hallam The Spout Liffey

'The Spout', Liffey Falls upper carpark track | © 2020 Jade Austen. All rights Reserved.

There are two walking tracks through cool temperate rainforest to Liffey Falls, which is part of Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage area. Liffey Falls Track from the upper car park (2 km return) passes beneath towering eucalypts and massive tree ferns, and there are lookout points along the way at different levels of the falls. There is some uphill walking on your return to the car park.

Due to the narrow gravel road into the car park, the Upper Falls track is not accessible to long wheelbase vehicles such as caravans and motorhomes. Please take the alternate route via Liffey to the lower car park and start your walk there.

The track from the lower car park and campground follows the Liffey River up through temperate rainforest to the main falls and back again (6km return). This walk is longer but has a gentler incline than the upper track.

Both walks provide beautiful examples of Tasmania's temperate rainforest and ancient river systems.

Time: 45 min return from the upper car park, 3 hours return from the lower car park.

Grade: 2: Suitable for most ages. The track has a hardened or compacted surface with uphill sections and sections of occasional steps.
