The Wandle Falls walk in Tasmania’s Tarkine region is a straightforward walk, in fact, meandering through the myrtle forest searching for tiny autumn fungi might in fact be the best way to enjoy this location! As per my previous post, the falls are accessed from the A10 highway… Read more →
Another short but rewarding walk in Tasmania’s Tarkine region is the scramble to Wandle Falls. Located on the Murchisson Highway (A10) a short distance from Waratah, park your car at the Wandle River crossing and follow the creek downstream (west) a short distance… Read more →
Clutching my copy of the Tarkine Trails guidebook, I decided to do a little reccie in the Ramsay Rainforest area near Waratah in Tasmania’s beautiful Tarkine region.
The start of the track was easy to find (thanks to the guidebook!) and I decided to just walk and see how far I would get… Read more →
This autumn I have made a couple of trips to Tasmania’s beautiful Tarkine region, once on my own to shoot and explore and the second trip being the workshop in early May.

I revisited the wonderful McGowans Falls last week. Unlike my previous visit, which was in the late summer, there was a great amount of water and the falls were at their best. Winter and spring really are the best seasons for visiting and photographing waterfalls for this very reason… Read more →
Autumn is the season where the rainforest floor comes alive in brightly coloured and fantastically shaped fungi. The shots below are all from the Tarkine rainforest in north west Tasmania.
All images are macro and the vast majority were shot with a very shallow depth of field (ie f2.8~f4) to allow for nicely blurred out backgrounds (and foregrounds too for that matter!)… Read more →
Final preparations are complete for next month’s Tarkine photography workshop, and last week I spent a few nights in the area, including one night shooting sunrise & sunset Granville Harbour style and meeting with the good folk of Corinna Wilderness Experience to finalise our plans… Read more →
