Liffey River Cascades
Liffey Falls is one of Tassie’s best waterfalls, not just because the falls themselves are great, but the Liffey River cascades through some wonderful forest with multiple locations to shoot during the short walk of around 20-25 minutes each way.
The first viewing decks are found around 10 minutes down the track and funnily enough this is the first time I have actually shot them! The whole river was looking great over the weekend thanks to plenty of rain late last week, and I made the time to shoot each cascade “properly” 🙂
Just a few minutes further downstream you come to I think the highlight in the area – the “spout” – a really narrow groove in the riverbed that acts as a funnel for a beautiful spout of water which then flows through a beautiful ferny gorge. I have shot this cascade before but the amount of water right now is terrific, and I am particularly happy with how these turned out 🙂
From here it is a short walk down to the main falls which are really looking great at the moment and well worth a visit right now. Surprisingly there was very little fungi on the track but I am sure that will change in the weeks ahead.
Absolutely one of Tasmania’s best short walks, highly recommended in the months ahead or indeed anytime after good rain 🙂
