Montezuma Falls

  • by

One of the highest waterfalls in Tasmania.

The 104 meter high Montezuma Falls, on the slopes of Mount Dundas, are one of the highest waterfalls in Tasmania.

The falls can be accessed using a 4 kilometers each way walking track (3 hours return) to the bottom of the falls. The walking track begins at the small township of Williamsford and is an easy gradient through pleasant, open rainforest along the path of the old mining North East Dundas Tramway.

The walk to the falls includes crossing local creeks including via a suspension bridge at the bottom of the falls.

This area of Mount Dundas was formerly mined by the Montezuma Silver Mining company and it is this which gives the waterfall its name.

As a note, due to the mining the creek water in the area contaminates and is not suitable for consumption.
