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. There is a nice and wide path, and it is easy to spot the falls as a bridge goes across the river right in front of them. Here is Old Farm Road on the map:
I visit these falls regularly as part of my “Hobart & Surrounds” workshop. We usually spend around 90 minutes here which allows plenty of time for camera talk and composing from a variety of angles. After we are done at the waterfall, the workshop moves to the eastern shore where we do a sunset with Mt Wellington and the city lights of Hobart. For all the details on this workshop click here.
