Waratah Road,

Follow the historic mining water race along an easily accessible walking track that leads to a view of Philosopher Falls -named after the man who changed the fortunes of the entire state of Tasmania through his discovery of tin at Mt Bischoff, near Waratah. Just a ten kilometre drive out of Waratah, on the B23 road to Corinna, you will discover this stunning short walk that provides a glimpse into the wild and mysterious Tarkine rainforest. Autumn is the best time to see the cartoon-like fungi dotted all along the track, but at any time of the year, this is an experience you don't want to leave off your bucket list. The Falls lookout is at the end of the 45-minute stroll into the forest, however even a short ten-minute walk in from the car park will reward you with a magical 'Alice in Wonderland' experience....
