Adamsons falls is a short walk in the south of Tasmania. The falls are pretty impressive after some heavy rain but expect some water and bog on the track.
Allow about 2-3 hours return depending on the number of stops for food and photos. If you are also doing Creekton falls I would add allow another 1.5 – 2 hours as the track is slow going.
To access the Creekton falls track, cross the creek at the base of the main waterfall. From memory there are a few rocks that can be used to avoid wading through the creek. This will all depend on the amount of water coming down the waterfall. Once on the other side you should be able to spot some pink ribbon indicating the track to Creekton falls.
The track to Adamsons falls is not in the best condition but it is easy to follow. Walking from Adamsons falls to Creekton falls is slightly trickier as the track is somewhat overgrown and less obvious.
If you are lucky you might hear or even see a Lyre bird.

Getting there: There are two ways to get to the start of the track.
Option 1: South of Dover. Approaching from the north, take the old Hastings Road at a junction 3.1km south of the Esperance River bridge in the township of Strathblane, after 1km turn right onto the Darcy Link Road and then left onto Creekton Rd. Continue past the Duckhole lake carpark and cross the bridge. Continue along Coal Hill road where it will split into three roads. Take the middle track then follow that until you reach an intersection. Turn right then follow that road until you reach the start of the track.
Option 2: Continue past the turnoff outlined in option 1. Follow the Huon highway until you reach the turnoff to Hastings cave and thermal springs. Drive past the Hastings caves thermal pools and visitors centre. Turn right onto Chestermans Road and follow it until it ends in a T junction. Turn left and follow the road until you reach the clearly marked start of the track.
Although this might take a bit longer, there are some big trees on Chestermans road that are worth checking out.
