Starting near the Evercreech Forest Reserve at the end of Egans Road, Mathinna, this walk leads to Evercreech Falls and back via the Evercreech Falls Track. Enjoy a short stroll among magnificent white gums, the tallest of their type in Australia. The hike is on a typical bush track, that meanders alongside Evercreech Rivulet until you reach the waterfalls. One side of the rivulet is beautiful wet rainforest, while the other side (where the white gums are situated) is dry forest. Evercreech Falls is a gentle waterfall that cascades down a steep slope, before dropping approximately 3-5 metres below. The hike ends at the base of the falls, surrounded by an intimate natural ampitheatre of Tasmanian rainforest. The Forest Reserve area is fitted with gas barbeques, toilet facilities, and park benches. This hike is relatively easy, but has some slippery parts. If done as a loop walk, it requires wading through the rivulet by foot on the way back. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
