About this hike

This walk along Liffey Falls Track shows of four unique cascading falls starting with Alexander Falls and fishing with Liffey Falls. The area was saved by former political leader Bob Brown in the early 1990’s and sparked the creation of the well-known preservation charity, Bush Heritage Australia. Today this trail offers a fantastic short walk suitable for most hikers as they experience the vast biodiversity of the local area and falls.
