Horsetail Falls

The locals actually call this fall Horsetail Falls, not sure why. It is indeed seasonal. My partner and I have driven past this fall a number of times, most times there is water going over it but on other occasions there is none.


The road coming out of Queenstown, named 99 bends by locals, hides the waterfall until you are right on top of it, it is an awesome sight when you turn the corner and you see a ribbon of water flowing down the mountain.

Definitely one of the nicest waterfalls, easy to access. I would recommend stopping and looking to everyone.

Its called Horsetail falls because in full run it resembles a horses tail..... has also been called Ponytail Falls and Angel Falls at odd times.

This waterfall surprised us. I never expected to see it on our trip and didn't do any research for it. So I never knew what its real name was.

Thanks for clarifying that and providing a little insight to this part of Tassie.
