Marriotts Falls is a 4.6km, grade 2 Return hike located in Marriotts Falls State Reserve Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 2.5hrs to complete.

Summary

Far lesser known than the nearby Russell Falls, the Marriott Falls are arguably as spectacular as the Russell Falls. If you are in the area these falls certainly are worth the time to visit.

The trail follows the river Tyenna River initially, and then turns to head towards the falls. The trail then heads through a clearing into the bush to reach the falls. Do take care to take note of the markers. The area of the falls has a number of fallen logs that need to be scrambled over so do take care. Onve you have viewed the falls then return via the same route.

Getting there

From Hobart, take National Highway 1, Lyell Hwy/A10, B62 and Gordon River Rd/B61 to Tyenna Rd in Tyenna. Continue on this to reach the falls, keep a look out for the signs as it is marked.

Tips

  • Hiking poles will be beneficial as the trail has steep sections and is very muddy in many sections. Plus make sure you have good sturdy footwear for the same reason.
  • Bring your camera as the falls and the area is highly scenic.
