St Columba Falls – one of Tassie’s Highest!
St Columba Falls is one of Tasmania’s highest multi-tiered waterfalls and who doesn’t love a good waterfall?
Where is St Columba Falls
You will find St Columba Falls around 30km west of St Helens just past the town of Pyengana.
Travel along the Tasman Highway (A3) towards St Helens from Scottsdale, and then turn onto road C428 from Pyengana (where you can stop in at the Pub in the Paddock to feed a pig a beer, or the Holy Cow Cheese Cafe (see below). This is a sealed road all the way.
There are toilet and picnic facilities available at the start of the walk.
Is the walk difficult?
What makes this one even more special is that it is so easy to get to with a very short 15-minute walk from the carpark to get to the base of the falls. The walking track is fantastic and you are protected from the sun in the beautiful rainforest.
It is a Grade 2 walk. The return walk from the falls is uphill so you need some level of fitness – although you can go at your own pace. If you don’t think you will be able to make the walk, you can actually see the falls from the carpark!
What else to see in Pyengana
See our separate post on the Pub in a Paddock on how you can feed a pig a beer!
You can also stop in at the Holy Cow Cheese Cafe for some morning tea, cheese or to simply relax in the outdoor area.
We loved watching the cows roam the paddock and then head on in for their daily routine.
