Liffey Falls

We love when routes offer big variety and this one doesn’t disappoint. Rolling farmlands. Wooded forests. A rain forest. Small creeks. A beautiful falls. A river. And … more farmlands.

Rolling and flat farmland roads through Meander Valley that let you spin with such a lovely consistency while you enjoy sheep and cattle farms.

And the “magical mystery tour” with steep pitches that take you up through eucalyptus forests and then a mystical rain forest which includes an easy hike to the Liffey Falls.

Plus the route starts in Westbury, which boasts the only village green in Tasmania, historic Victorian buildings, a hedge maze (now how could you miss that) and the Saint Andrews church which was built between 1836 and 1890 (hey it just wasn’t a speedy process.) And don’t forget Steam World: the largest collection of steam engines in the Southern Hemisphere. Read more
