Lady Barron Falls is the third and furthest waterfall on the Three Falls Circuit walk through Mt Field National Park. A viewing platform provides a great view of the waterfall, where Lady Barron Creek cascades over multiple tiers. Like the more famous Russell Falls Lady Barron Falls consists of softer horizontal marine Permian siltstone benches, while the vertical faces of the falls are composed of resistant sandstone layers.
The waterfall is named after Lady Clara Barron, the wife of Sir Harry Barron, who was a former Governor of Tasmania.
