The hike is an 8 km (2 hours) return walk. The track will bring you to the base of the 103 - 110 m / 338 - 361 ft high falls and a bridge that offers excellent views.

The falls are also surrounded by a beautiful rainforest, with plenty of opportunities for kids to explore and discover. Kids will love it. Just bring water and snacks with you!

There are toilets and picnic tables at the start of the trail only. So pack a picnic and make a day of it!

Montezuma Falls also features a suspension bridge across the river and offers a unique viewpoint of the falls and the surrounding Tasmanian wilderness.

You can walk through a little tunnel and the bridge to get a closer look at the falls that come down.

Please note that the bridge could sometimes be closed for safety or maintenance reasons.
