O'Gradys Falls Fern Tree, Hobart






A short well-graded walk through open bushland to an attractive waterfall.

Colourful shows of wildflowers in summer, plenty of birds and good views of the Organ Pipes are additional highlights of this walk. Being at a lower elevation with a sunny aspect makes this a good option for a winter walk.

Lush green ferns and mosses surround O’Grady’s Falls which are best viewed from the middle of the bridge. The cold clear water cascading over these falls flows into Hobart Rivulet, under the city and then into the Derwent River.
