Easy walk on well defined track to multi tiered waterfall. Beautiful rainforest full of amazing birds and other wildlife. The dark coloured wallabies are so cute and quite friendly.

Definately worth the detour and the short walk to view the falls. Magnificent. Great spot to stop for lunch and a rest before heading on to Scottsdale and the winding road into Launceston. Check out the cheese farm and pub in the paddock as well.

We visited a couple of days after a wet spell and were rewarded with Tasmania’s highest waterfall running full tilt, a spectacular sight! Also, look out for the extensive varieties of fungi that grow along the track down to the Falls. Well worth the drive...More

After we parked our rental car we headed down to the St Columba Falls Reserve. We were surrounded by tropical trees and plants. It was gorgeous! When we arrived at the Falls, we were mesmerized. I knew it was one waterfall, but it was running...More
