Ralphs Falls is a 2.5km, grade 2 Circuit hike located in Mt Victoria Forest Reserve Tasmania. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.


At over 90 metres Ralphs Falls is Tasmania’s highest single drop waterfall, a streaming ribbon of water plunging over a sheer rock face. Cash’s Gorge is a beautiful but relaxed walk of approximately 40 minutes through rainforest, stands of tea tree, sphagnum moss and rugged terrain.
