Nelson Falls Track

Nelson Falls is a waterfall in Tasmania. This beautiful waterfall is in a National Park, a short walk from the Lyell Highway (A10) between Queenstown and Derwent Bridge.

A marked track, complete with board walk, provides an easy way to park your car and walk to the waterfall. The board walk is slightly raised from the ground to help reduce your impact on the vegetation.

We stopped at this walk on our way from Hobart to Strahan. The walk was helpful in stretching our legs and provided a great introduction to the stunning scenery Tasmania offers.
