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.

About the region
Railton is a perfect example of one man's obsession and how it "grew" literally into a town's major tourist attraction. In 1999 Neil Hurley started talking about turning Railton into the "Town of Topiary" and the project grew from there. Beyond its topiary Railton is really nothing more than a service centre for the surrounding area which is economically driven by mixed farming, timber and a substantial Cement Works. It is a town in a pretty location with very little to cause the visitor to pause ... except for the topiary sculptures which, when combined with local arts and crafts and a boutique brewery - Seven Sheds - makes it a town worth exploring.
