These falls are located on the eastern side of the Norold Range in Southwest Tasmania. They are in an unnamed tributary of the Old River. Nearby, closer to Richea Peak, is Skew Falls. The two streams merge about a kilometer below the falls.

There are three small drops at the edge of the plateau and a larger fall about 200 meters lower down the bluff. The many branched stream above the falls drains most of the plateau to the northeast of Mount Norold. John Chapman,(South West Tasmania) suggests Mount Norold can be accessed as an off track walk from the Old River route to Federation Peak.
