Free camp at Liffey Falls, Tasmania

Tasmania has so many romantic locations! We loved our walk to Liffey Falls, with a pretty free camp, a donation camp nearby and a new farmstay in the area!

Firstly, I have to say on our drive to Liffey Falls  in the Great Western Tiers, you come across the BEST views like the one above…

Liffey Falls includes not just one waterfall – but four: Alexandra Falls, Hopetoun Falls, Albert Falls and Victoria Falls (known as “Liffey Falls”).

We took the shorter walk from the top carpark (a day use area only). There’s shelters, information boards, picnic and barbecue facilities at the carpark.

A short stroll from here, is ‘Big Tree’ walk a 50 metre tall gumtopped stringybark with a  diameter of more than 3 metres. 

Please note: the access road to the upper car park is not suitable for campervans, buses, or caravans.

Lower Liffey Reserve

The Lower car park and campgrounds are suitable for campervans, buses, or caravan and you can walk to Liffey Falls.

There’s a number of level places to park by the river at the start of a 50 min walk to the falls, including a walking bridge across the Liffey river. Expect plenty of stairs and give yourselves approximately 2-3 hours return.

There are no pets allowed.

Toilets are available.

Old Liffey School

This interesting campsite sits high on a hill, and close to a road. Camp at the historic schoolhouse by donation. Pets are allowed. Please note the area has few level sites. Boil water before use. It is not far to Liffey Falls and campground. Toilets are available here, also.

Find these sites and more nearby in the CAMPS guide books, CAMPS Pendium boxed set and CAMPS AUSTRALIA WIDE App.
