Myrtle Gully Falls

Myrtle Gully Falls

Myrtle Gully Falls is very close to Hobart and a great place to get some experience photographing waterfalls. It is found on the Myrtle Gully track which begins at the end of Old Farm Road, which is conveniently located right at the rear of the Cascade Brewery, so you can reward yourself with a cold drink after a session on the mountain The walk in from the car park is only 10 minutes or so, and is mostly uphill walking, but on a fairly gentle gradient… Read more →

Secret Falls

The now rather ironically named Secret Falls has become something of a social media sensation. It is a beautiful little cascade, only 2 or 3 metres high, but its location a short distance from Hobart in the foothills of Mt Wellington has made it a bit of a must see destination for photographers… Read more →
Tasman Bridge and a snowy Mt Wellington

Tasman Bridge and a snowy Mt Wellington

The snow in Hobart has been a major talking point this week, and with many of the roads closed I took a quick drive to Lindisfarne this morning to shoot a snow capped Mt Wellington at sunrise.

Mt Wellington Hikes: Devils Throne

Mt Wellington Hikes: Devils Throne

While there are many well known Mt Wellington hikes on the Hobart side of the mountain, the Devils Throne via Thark Ridge is less well known and the trail less maintained.
