There are two walking tracks through beautiful rainforest to Liffey Falls, which is part of Tasmania’s World Heritage area.
The popular 45 minute return walk from the top car park offers developed picnic facilities and a high grade, all-weather walking track. The walk lies within the Liffey Falls State Reserve, an area of cool temperate rainforest, featuring myrtle, sassafrass and leatherwood on the slopes of the Great Western Tiers.
The Liffey Falls walk trail passes through towering eucalypts and massive tree ferns and there are lookout points along the way at different levels of the falls. The final descent to the base of the falls is quite steep, but generally this is a fairly easy walk, suitable for all ages.
The alternative track from the lower car park offers a 2 hour return walk with minimal facilities via a longer and less developed walking track, following the route of an old tramway used for timber hauling in the early 1900s.
Access to the upper track from Mole Creek is via Deloraine or Western Creek to Lake Highway, turning left into Riversdale Road and following the signs. The road in to the upper carpark is unsealed and narrow, with sharp bends. Please exercise care on this road.
To get to the lower carpark, take the same route into Riversdale Road, and take the first left turn. Turn right at the T-junction onto Bogan Road and continue on until you reach the access road to the lower track on the right hand side (opposite Bluff Road).
Approx 35 minutes’ drive from Mole Creek.
