Montezuma Falls is an easy walk through magnificent Tasmania rainforest, following a route of the historic North East Dundas Tramway. At 104m high, Montezuma Falls are one of the highest and most spectacular waterfalls in Tasmania, especially after heavy rain which is common in the area. The track takes the walker to the base of the falls.

The track takes you almost entirely through pleasant and open park like rainforest, that includes leatherwood, myrtle, sassafras, giant tree ferns and large fungi.

Montezuma Falls

A mineral survey undertaken in 1890 showed the falls know known as Montezuma Falls, marked as Osbourne Falls. Montezuma was the name of the last Aztec emperor of Mexico (1466-1520). In Tasmania, his name appears to have originally been applied to a mining company, the Montezuma Silver Mining Company formed in 1891.
