Liffey TAS


Postcode: 7301

Liffey is a small community 50km from Launceston, Tasmania, Australia.

Nearby towns are Bracknell and Blackwood Creek.

Access into the reserve is down a steep narrow road to a large but secluded picnic area with an information booth, picnic shelters, gas barbecues and disabled access toilets. An ideal place to relax and enjoy a walk to the falls.

This 40 minute return walk through wet eucalypt forest and tall manferns has viewing points for the upper falls and cascades. A steeper descent allows access to the base of the majestic Liffey Falls. For those seeking a longer quieter walk of 3 hours return, a separate track continues downstream to the Gulf Road Picnic Area.
