Rinadena Falls

Rinadena Falls is a stunning waterfall in Tasmania’s Walls of Jerusalem National Park. I visited here many years ago, and after a rather tragic end to that trip –  dropping my camera in the river 🙁 – I had always planned to come back for a re-shoot and it has taken a global pandemic and...Read More

Regnans Falls, Styx Valley

Mt Wellington’s Disappearing Tarn

I made my first visit to the Disappearing Tarn on Mt Wellington yesterday. The Disappearing Tarn, as it’s name might suggest, is not a permanent water feature on the mountain, and only appears after very heavy rainfall then slowly drains away. Over the past few days there was around 110mm of rain on Mt Wellington...Read More

Tasman Bridge in Blue Hour

This shot has been a little goal of mine for a while now – just a nice, calm shot of the city lights including the Tasman Bridge under the imposing backdrop of Mt Wellington. I wasn’t after a flashy sunset, and I wanted calm weather and clear skies, which we have had in abundance recently...Read More

Upper Quaile Falls

My first visit to this fall, Upper Quaile Falls is a very picturesque cascade in the Cradle Mountain area. The fall is actually signposted from the main road to Cradle. You’ll need to be looking closely however as it is an unofficial sign – basically a wooden board nailed to a tree. You follow the...Read More

Sundown Point Petroglyphs

The Sundown Point petroglyphs are a very significant aboriginal cultural site on Tasmania’s west coast. We visited the north west including Arthur River recently and dropped in on the Parks and Wildlife office where we got some incredibly helpful directions on finding them and headed out for sunset at Sundown Point over the petroglyphs. The...Read More

Styx Valley aerial shoot

My first trip out once corona virus travel restrictions were lifted a couple of weeks ago was the Styx Valley and Tims Track. I was keen to go on a bit of a fungi hunt but also took the drone in case there was some nice morning mist to be had. There was 🙂 I...Read More
