Liffey Falls Rail Trail is a 5km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Northern Tasmania Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.


The Liffey Falls trail takes you past one of the state’s most attractive cascading waterfalls. The trail can be walked from either the upper car park, where there are picnic tables, toilets and water, or the lower car park, which is essentially just a trailhead. The lower end of the trail is narrower but well formed and follows the route of an old tramway used for timber hauling in the early 1900s.

For more information on this trail see the book Rail Trails of Tasmania.
