Preston Falls

Preston Falls is located south of Ulverstone, Tasmania just down the road from Wings Wildlife Park (check next week’s post about my visit to the wildlife park! ๐Ÿ˜€).

A short and well maintained track leads you through blackwood forest, across Preston Creek, over the top of the waterfall, and around to a lookout.

While there, we saw several tiny birds at the top of the trees. I can’t work out what they are, so if you can recognise them from this video, please let me know. I couldn’t get any photos of them as they were too quick, and the video is a bit shaky as it was on zoom and I was looking straight up into the trees.

The confusing thing about this waterfall is its name. It’s signed as Preston Falls but known locally as Delaneys Falls. Sometimes it’s also called Upper Preston Falls. Whatever its name, it’s a nice waterfall and easily accessible, so it’s definitely worth a look if you’re in the area.

    1. Thanks Ashley, wow, first time I’ve seen a dusky robin! Another one to cross off my list of endemic Tassie wildlife! ๐Ÿ™‚
