falls

Montezuma Falls

Montezuma Falls, near Rosebery on Tasmania's west coast, is Tasmania's highest waterfall. The track to the falls begins at Williamsford, two kilometres south of Rosebery.

This easy, three-hour return walk along a level track takes you to the base of the 104 metre falls through pleasant park-like rainforest of leatherwood, myrtle, sassafras and giant tree ferns.

You may see native wildlife along the way, including several species of birds. The track follows the historic route of the former North East Dundas Tramway right to the base of Montezuma Falls.

The creek immediately below the falls was once spanned by a wooden trestle bridge, 160 feet long and 50 feet high. Today derelict pieces of timber, moss-covered concrete piers and rusty bolts are the only remains of this bridge.
