Tasmania has many scenic waterfalls and it is open to debate as to which is the the most scenic. The two main contenders are Russell Falls and Liffey Falls. Nestled in the Great Western Tiers within a protected reserve and part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Liffey Falls eptomises the Tasmania wilderness.
About an hours drive from Launceston, a walk leads down to the falls from a picnic area near the main carpark. Onroute to the falls, the walk passes through temperate rainforest, tall eucalypts, and tree ferns. There is also four sets of falls along the 45-minute walk.
