Knock yourself out, travel up Old Farm Road . . . then walk into Myrtle Forest Track . . . less than an hour up ~400m of climbing trail to Junction Cabin . . . then back down. It'll be sure to relax you, calm you and make you feel at one with nature.

We went to Tassie and we saw this and after it rained the waterfall was very heavy and it was nice to see. We were very close and it was hard to find without GPS. It was a lovely walk and it was very quiet Recommend this to anyone visiting Hobart.

The waterfall is a great waterfall but the forest wins the show. Lots of moss, ferns and running water makes this area almost a scene from the lord of the rings. But it was not easy to find, I put in 2 Myrtle forest falls Rd into the GPS and still struggled, we got lucky by driving along Springdale Rd... More

This place is well worth visiting. It is a little difficult to find. Tassie Tourism didn't know were it was! It is located behind Mt Wellington reached by heading towards Glenorchy. We used our SatNav and set 1 Wellington Road into it. This worked well, apart from it cutting out close to our destination. Once you are in the hills,... More

Access is from Collinsvale. A road becomes a bush track which can be used to access Collins Cap and Collins Bonnet after several hours of steep walking. Track deteriorates after 30 minutes walk. If you don't have much time, better to access Mt Wellington tracks from Ferntree which is closer to the city.

Lovely bush walk in this reserve. Path leaves from the car park up to the falls along a wide path until you get to the covered picnic area. From then on it is a small path that has steps and can be slippery in wet conditions. Due to this i didn't make it to the fall. Good foot ware is... More

My visit to the Myrtle Forest Falls was both a joy and disappointing. Due to lack of rain in this area there is very little water to cascade or worth photographing. However, if time is not an issue and you want to tick off your 'bucket list', then the walk through the forest will more than compensate for the lack... More

A drive into the Myrtle forest to see the Water Falls is well worth the drive to see the beauty of the area and visit the Falls.
