There are many waterfalls throughout Tasmania that are worth exploring! One of the best ways to discover some of the best scenery in Tasmania is simply hiking to a waterfall. Waterfalls of Tasmania has the most informative and thorough documentation about Tasmania's most popular waterfalls.
There are many scientific reasons why visiting a waterfall is good for our mental and physical health. I won't go into them here but I will say that exploring waterfalls on your hikes is a great way to break up the journey as their beauty alone is good for the soul.

About the region
The Tasman Peninsula will appeal to those who like spectacular coastlines, blowholes and caves, not to mention world heritage listed convict sites. An easy and very pretty 70 min drive from Hobart, the peninsula is best known for the famous Port Arthur Historic site, one of Tasmania's five World Heritage listed convict sites. Nearby, though not so well known, is the Coal Mines Historic Site – also world heritage listed – with over 25 substantial buildings and the remains of coal mining activities still evident.
Much of the peninsula is protected as national park, given its beauty and natural diversity, and is home to many animals including the brush tail possum, wallabies, wombats, bandicoots, Australian fur seals, penguins, dolphins and migrating whales as well as the endangered swift parrot and many forest-dwelling birds. You may also see endangered wedge-tailed eagles and sea eagles overhead. This spectacular coastal environment includes soaring 300 metre high sea cliffs and a number of fascinating coastal rock formations such as Tessellated Pavement, the Blow Hole, Tasman Arch, Devil's Kitchen, Remarkable Cave and Waterfall Bay, all easy to get to by car.
