Starting from the car park at the end of Williamsford Road, Rosebery, this walk leads to Montezuma Falls via the Montezuma Falls Walking Track. To come to the falls you’ll walk along a historic tramway route. Montezuma Falls is the highest single-drop waterfall in Tasmania, with a drop of approximately 104 metres. The track winds its way through a scenic rainforest, passing many points of interest highlighting the mining history of the area. The track starts with a flat surface and gentle gradient, reaching a slightly rough and uphill section on the last 500 metres. Once at the falls, a swing bridge crossing the gorge below provides excellent views of the impressive Montezuma Falls. Return to the car park following the same route. Facilities at nearby Rosebery include picnic facilities, shops and toilets. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
