# 2 Montezuma Falls

Montezuma Falls is located in towards the western coast of Tasmania. These are the tallest Tasmanian waterfalls of all at a whopping 104 metres.  The beauty of this walk is how up close and personal you can get to the falls. Be warned that you will not be dry after viewing this waterfall when it has received a bit of rain. Bring a towel and extra clothing if you mind getting wet.

How To Get There

Located within Rosebery, Montezuma Falls is approximately 36 mins away from Zeehan towards the northeast. Here are the Google Maps coordinates.

Distance

7kms return – easy grade, roughly 3-4 hours return depending on how long you stay and admire the falls.

# 5 Horseshoe Falls

Just one hour west of Hobart is Mount Field National Park, which houses a series of amazing waterfalls. This is my personal favourite as it was the first day the rain had stopped and I could finally appreciate these Tasmanian waterfalls without being wet head to toe.

Enter Mount Field National Park and the track is well signposted at the centre.

Distance

1km – 1hr of walking on an easy grade. This track gives you the opportunity to find three waterfalls: Russell Falls, Horseshoe Falls and Lady Barron Falls.
