This park is easily accessed in car from Hobart. Depending on how much trekking you want to do there are easy short walks to more advanced ones. There are several waterfalls in park which are great photo opportunities.

The walk is stunningly beautiful and very flat, so people with mobility issues would have no issues being able to go see these beautiful falls. Even though when me and my partner went it wasn't a heavy flow, it was still worth it and I...More
