Although not part of Rocky Cape National
Park, they are a short drive from the eastern end of the park. 9
kilometres south of Sisters Creek through the rich green pastures of the
North West are the superb Detention Falls. Turn left towards Meuna
then right at Hawleys Road. Only a short 10 minute walk
takes you to a well constructed viewing platform. The track has
recently been upgraded making in one of Tasmania's great short walks.
The adventurous can venture down to the valley floor. The tannin in the
water gives the water a pink hue.
NOTE: As a result of an engineers report the viewing
platform at the falls has been removed.
