Visited these falls with a group recently. There are 2 options to tackle this one ,but we took the tougher one.
The track starts about 5ks in on the interestingly names Oigles Road which is a gravel road leading off Kermandie
River road ..about 10ks out of Geeveston. Note this is NOT the Arve Road.
About 4 ks in length basically following the Kermandie River , at times right beside it , but later on high above
it , so there is a bit of flat and some climbing , with a few boggy sections on some ridges.
The main feature besides the falls i thought was a healthy stand of swamp gums about halfway along, all
with 'live' crowns on the top. The falls themselves are moderately high and had a good flow in them.
Another attraction in the area ..if you are lucky ..is a population of lyre birds. On a trip a few weeks before this , some members of the group said they watched one for a good 30 minutes , alas we didn't have such luck.
So , for anyone planning trips to this area , this is a worthwhile trip to add to the list.
The start of the track is not signposted .looks like its been smashed , but the start is right beside where the
Kermandie River goes across Oigles Road ,on the upper side.
According to a map I have , this was part of the original track to Hartz Mountains before you could drive to it.
