Triplet Falls

Triplet Falls is a set of cascades, tucked away in lush rainforest near Beech Forest.

Elevation profile

The walk is 2.6km return and follows a loop. It can be completed in around 1 hour. We completed it with a 5yo and 9 yo in 1 hour 15 mins, including stops for photos.

You start out by walking down a long series of steps. There is also a long section on metal boardwalk that is built above ground level. The track is visually stunning, so many tall Mountain Ash trees that are estimated to be over 300 years old.

The track takes you through a series of viewing platforms, starting at the bottom of the cascades. While you can't see much from the first platform, hang in there because it gets better....

There is one platform a bit further on that gets you a cracking view of one of the largest sections, while also being able to see the water flowing through a number of other smaller cascades.

Of course, what goes down must go back up... The steps back up are steep and are guaranteed to get your heart rate up. However the pain won't last forever, it's actually only 20 minutes from the main viewing platform back to the carpark.

On the way back there are some historical points of interest relating to timber milling. A boiler lies covered in moss, as well as a bogie still covered in milled timbers.

It's worth noting that there is another set falls called Little Aire Falls which can also be walked starting out from the Triplet Falls trail.
