Directions - Philosopher Falls is located a ten minute drive from the centre of Waratah in the North West of Tasmania. Take Waratah Road south out of town and keep going for 10km until you see the sign for Philosopher Falls, pointing you right onto Butlers Road. Keep going along the unsealed road until you reach the car park at the end. The trail head is not at the seat but further around on the eastern side of the car park.
The Hike - With the next leg of our Tasmanian Road Trip taking us to Corinna, this was a place I was excited to visit thanks to the good number of walks in the area. While there was plenty to do close to Corinna, I had my eye set on visiting one particular hike that didn't seem too far away when I was planning activities. Only 50km away, this didn't seem so bad when looking at Google Maps but once we arrived in the area, it was clear that the roads and terrain weren't as easy to pass through as I initially thought. Nevertheless, with Candy and Hal wanting to check out the Pieman River from the comfort of their kayaks, I thought this was a great activity that both Caris and I would enjoy.
