Summary: Knyvet Falls is a small waterfall along Pencil Pine Creek, a short walk from the Cradle Mountain Lodge.

Downstream of the Pencil Pine Falls on Pencil Pine Creek is the Knyvet Falls. The waterfall is a bit further along the Dove Canyon Track which starts near the Cradle Mountain Lodge. The trail leads to a signposted lookout next to the top of the waterfall; there’s no access to the base of the falls, but you can get a better view from a bit further along the walking track.

Getting to Knyvet Falls

The walking trail to Knyvet Falls starts near Cradle Mountain Lodge, just after the Cradle Mountain Interpretation Centre on Cradle Mountain Road (about a two hour drive from Launceston). The Dove Canyon Track is a boardwalk that goes past the Pencil Pine Cascades and Pencil Pine Falls, before reaching the Knyvet Falls. The Dove Canyon Track then continues along Pencil Pine Creek before looping back to the Cradle Mountain Ranger Station.
