The Lady Barron Falls, a tiered–cascade waterfall on the Lady Barron Creek, is located in the Central Highlands region of Tasmania, Australia.

Location and features[edit]

The Lady Barron Falls are situated in the Mount Field National Park, a short distance from Russell Falls, approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi) northwest of Hobart via the Brooker and Lyell highways; and are a popular tourist attraction. The waterfall descends over horizontal marine Permian siltstone benches, while the vertical faces of the falls are composed of resistant sandstone layers.[2][3][4]

The waterfall is named in honour of Lady Clara Barron,[citation needed] the wife of Sir Harry Barron.
