Access to Pelverata Falls is
near the township of Pelverata. The route is well signposted at
Pelvarata. From Hobart, take the Southern Outlet past Kingston. Turn
left at Sandfly and right immediately to Pelverata. The sign at the
start of the falls suggests 3 hours for the walk. I was able to do it
