Chasm Falls is a delightful small fall on the edge of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, accessed through the small town of Meander.
The falls are accessed from the very end of Smoko Road, where you need to cross the Mother Cummings Rivulet on foot, which could be a significant challenge, if not impossible, during higher water levels than our visit a few days ago.
It took us just less than an hour to reach the first of the three falls, and we spent a very leisurely couple of hours in this serenely beautiful location. The moss and the greenery was fantastic, and I kept a close eye out for fungi but saw very little. No doubt in another month or so it will be very different!
The water level was quite low, meaning it was fairly easy to hop around on the exposed rocks in front of the falls and capture a couple of compositions which wouldn’t be possible during heavy water flows.
This is my second visit to the region. My first trip was quite a few years ago now, to the Mother Cummings Rivulet. There are many more waterfalls to see in this area, so one thing’s for sure – it won’t be my last visit!
