Minnow falls is a fantastic waterfall located in Paradise. The location google maps gave us took us too someone’s private property, but if you keep following union bridge rd up and over the mountain you will see a sign on the left hand side of a gravel road saying minnow falls. The walk to the middle falls with lunch up the top for 30 minutes and then back down took us 3 hrs, and we are reasonably fit walkers. The track is well marked and even has a brochure at the start of the track with what to expect. Kentish walks have done a great job with marking out the track and creating a clear path for walkers. Absolute stunning walk!!!

Challenging hike. But well worth it for the amazing view.

Very nice but demanding hike, brings you out to a great view of the falls, however please do be careful when following the sign posts because they are not particularly clear. And for the love of god DO NOT FOLLOW THE BLOODY ‘FRED AND BILL’ OLD TRAIL!! My partner and I got hopelessly lost for 4 hours because of the damn pink and orange ribbons scattered about haphazardly.

it was tougher than we were lead to believe as the app said moderate. Speaking to other exsperienced bush walkers definitely not moderated. Good track though, 2 hrs return from Carpark up to falls and back.

I took my 7 and 8 year old on this one. it was some hard yakka to the first fall, but worth it. Awesome hike!

I worry about some of the people who write reviews on this app! The Minnow Falls walk is splendid although reaching the best part, Middle Falls, is demanding. Even the walk to the bottom fall is rewarding, with a nice pool and Christmas Bells in season. Falls more impressive after rains. The Sheffield group of volunteers have done so much to make it more accessible. Thank you Bas and Co.

Minnow falls is the most exiting waterfall hike in Northern Tasmania. This little known waterfall complex is one of the highest multi-tiered falls in Tasmania at 227m from the top to the bottom pool and is a spectacular sight when in flood. The walk in to the bottom pool is demanding with a 300m elevation but quite easy on a well defined and marked track. Being a class 4 track, a reasonable amount of fitness is required because it is not a walk in the park. The track from the bottom pool up to the middle falls platform is quite a bit steeper and involves climbing a Stainless steel rope ladder and negotiating through a cave. From the middle falls platform to the top of the falls involves two more ladders. I highly recommend this day walk.

Great track, difficult to get into but the hike up alongside the three(?) tiered waterfall is unreal!

Not worth the trouble. It's really hard getting to the falls and there is not much to see. Definitly not recomended.
