Tarraleah Falls Track

Tarraleah Falls


Directions - Located just under two hours west of Hobart, take the Brooker Hwy north and follow the signs for New Norfolk. Cross the River Derwent at New Norfolk and then follow the Lyall Highway north west all the way to Tarraleah. Turn onto Oldina Drive when you see the sign for The Lodge and follow it all the way to the end where you can park opposite Tarraleah Estate. The start of the walk is a bit hard to find but cross over the large hydro pipes where the gate is and there will be a Tarraleah Falls sign as you enter the forest.

The Hike - With a three hour drive between Lake Pedder and Lake St Clair to get through today, I had planned a couple of stops along the way to stretch the legs and add more trails to an already loaded itinerary. Having stopped at the Creepy Crawly Nature Trail in the morning, we popped into the Possum Shed Café at Westerway for a much needed hot chocolate before turning off and heading north towards Lake St Clair. The weather was starting to turn and with a cold snap coming in, the rain and freezing winds were just the start of what we'd experience later in the day.
