Waterfall Bay - Great Short Walk

Waterfall Bay - Great Short Walk
Waterfall Bay - Great Short Walk
Waterfall Bay is one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks. The 60 Great Short Walks offer the best of Tasmania's day walking opportunities. 1-1.5 hours return, 3.4km return. Grade 3. ​An exciting walk that takes you right to the edge, with numerous stunning views from cliffs that plummet into the swirling sea beneath. Geology is the star here, with amazing formations, including arches and gulches worn through sedimentary layers by constant wave action. ​The walk ends at a high lookout with views across to a waterfall that drops over perpendicular cliffs into the sea. After rain the falls can put on a spectacular display. You can do this as a return walk or a one way walk (car shuffle required).​ Please refer to the Parks and Wildlife Service Tasmania website ( for up-to-date information about this walk, alerts, closures, safe walking guidelines, leave no trace principles and National Park entry fees where applicable.
