The Liffey Falls track is again open to visitors! During June 2016, over 400mm of rain fell on the Great Western Tiers and Central Plateau causing major floods throughout northern Tasmania. Major towns like Deloraine, Devonport and Launceston all felt the force of these floods, and there was of course major damage to infrastructure and natural areas… Read more →
The Marakoopa Cave, along with the nearby King Solomon Cave, is one of the main public access caves in the Mole Creek Karst National Park. The caves have formed in the limestone bedrock over millions of years and are intricately lit up and access is only available on a guided tour arranged at the nearby National Parks office… Read more →
Of all the waterfalls to photograph in Tasmania, Liffey Falls is without a doubt one of the most rewarding.
The trail begins in a large parking and picnic area, and passes through some beautiful tall ferns, myrtles and sassafras before joining the Liffey River… Read more →

Mother Cummings Rivulet is accessed through the town of Meander. The road is quite rough and ends at the rivulet itself, where you need to wade across the river… Read more →
One of the most rewarding rainforest and waterfall walks I have taken in Tasmania was the short(ish) 2-3 hour return walk to Westmoreland Falls just south of Mole Creek in northern Tasmania’s Great Western Tiers. The track winds firstly through tallish forest before reaching a creek where things turn a little more “Jurassic Park” with tall ferns and tangled Tasmanian rainforest… Read more →
One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Tasmania to photograph would have to be Liffey falls which is nestled deep within the rugged peaks, cliffs and rainforest of the Great Western Tiers in northern Tasmania.
Located around 30 minutes from Deloraine, the falls are great to visit at any time of the year with the cool flowing water a relaxing escape in summer, and the fast flowing cascades and deep greens of the forest an absolute paradise for photography during the winter and spring… Read more →
Water has to be my favourite subject to shoot. For a dynamic moving image, nothing is better than fast flowing creeks and waterfalls, and the added plus to Liffey Falls is the number of cascades. The main fall itself has a couple of tiers with numerous rocky ledges, dispersing the falling water into dozens of smaller cascades… Read more →
