Guide Falls

Tasmania

This is a popular picnic area just south of Burnie, near Ridgley. An easy walking track to the base of the two-tiered falls is a few hundred metres upstream. The road continues to the top of the falls and the viewing platform. A walking track leads you through the thick undergrowth of the riverside, down to a grassed area at the bottom. There are barbecues with picnic tables at both the top and bottom of the falls; a beautiful place to spend the day in summer.

Very pretty falls best seen from the bottom but still nice if unable to negotiate the steps.

Great short walk, a little steep but worth the waterfall at the top.
