Nelson Falls reviews
Easy walk 20 mins return - a must stop on the Strahan Hobart Road. Have Toilets, too! Recommended for all ages. more »
Super accessible for all abilities. Shady, spectacular,,toilets but no picnic tables. Green grass was damp but a picnic blanket would be helpful as it's a gorgeous place to eat lunch. more »
Nelson Falls is amazing a short walk from the road approximately 20 minutes on a Boardwalk which makes it very easy. when we visited there was a lot of rain prior and the falls were in full flow which was spectacular.
Short easy walk, mostly on boardwalk.. falls very impressive after a bit of rain!
