Photographing Waterfalls in Tasmania: Liffey Falls
One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Tasmania to photograph would have to be Liffey falls which is nestled deep within the rugged peaks, cliffs and rainforest of the Great Western Tiers in northern Tasmania.
Located around 30 minutes from Deloraine, the falls are great to visit at any time of the year with the cool flowing water a relaxing escape in summer, and the fast flowing cascades and deep greens of the forest an absolute paradise for photography during the winter and spring. Autumn brings the colourful denizens of the forest floor, the fungi, to life and although the walk is only sign posted as 40 minutes return, it would not be difficult to spend a whole day in this great little spot.
Make sure you investigate the short trails which lead from the main trail to the creek itself where you will discover lovely little cascades and alternative views of the creek. It is undeniable that the waterfall itself is a spectacular subject to photograph, it is always good to seek out slightly different subjects and angles to photograph to make your images stand out from the crowd – and there is no shortage of material in this magnificent World Heritage listed forest. Once you are finished you can return to the lovely country town of Deloraine for a hot drink or meal, or you could head south along the Highland Lakes highway towards more stunning Tasmanian scenery such as Pine Lake and Great Lake, the Walls of Jerusalem National Park and Lake St Clair. The A5 highway will take you all the way back to Hobart in approximately 3 hours. Other great waterfalls in Tasmania include the beautiful Russell Falls at Mt Field, and Philosopher Falls in the Tarkine.
