Better viewing for spectacular Nelson Falls


The Nelson Falls Track, one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks, is undergoing a facelift. The two waterfall viewing platforms are being replaced with a single larger platform that will provide a whole new view of the waterfall. The platform will be cantilevered over the river allowing an unobstructed view of the falls.

The Nelson Falls Track and car park will be intermittently closed during certain stages of the construction works between May and July 2011. With the closure of the Nelson Falls Visitor Area and associated toilet the closest toilets will be at the Franklin River Nature Trail to the east and Queenstown to the west. The new platform will be completed by July 2011.
