Ralphs Falls (50)

Ralphs Falls (50)

great-short-walk-mapRalphs Falls in the Mt Victoria Forest Reserve is yet another of Tasmania’s spectacular waterfalls. At 100m in height, it is taller than its neighbouring St Columba Falls, however, because water flow is often very limited on Ralphs Falls, St Columba wears the crown of tallest falls in Australia. Despite that, in many ways Ralphs Falls, plummeting in one major single stream down a sheer cliff face, is quite a dramatic sight, particularly after heavy rain.

There is a choice of two walks to the falls. The first is a direct return walk of 1.2kms (20mins), or you may choose to do the 4km circuit. The walk is graded at Level 2, suitable for most levels of fitness, however there are 25-steps with a handrail. The falls can be viewed from a lookout platform.

Sun protection and clothing suitable to the day’s weather are recommended. Children should be supervised at all times, particularly on the viewing platform.

Bus Pass New Zealand

About the Author:

Danny de Hek
Like most people, I have many passions, goals and dreams. As a self made business professional, my focus is helping my clients, associates and friends, build, strengthen and maintain their success. It would be fair to say I am in the full time business of building relationships and feel my purpose and skill is connecting the right people with the right people. My professional work tends to dominate my personal life, to the horror of my partner and business mentor. They both fully support me yet give me the hard truths when I need to hear this. I am always investing in my personal development to have a fulfilled work/life balance. I enjoy Target Shooting, Hiking & Mountain Biking to clear the brain and to take the guilt away when indulging at a quirky cafe for a cooked breakfast or brunch. My passion for travelling has seen me experience the world on many occasions, my next adventure will be doing the Tibet Rail Journey on the Qinghai-Tibet Railway from Lhasa to Golmud as long as they have Wi-Fi aboard ;-) I have many goals I still wish to achieve but am pretty chuffed that I have accomplished so many of these already.
