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 in Tasmania's Styx Valley of the giants

Regnans Falls, Styx Valley

Regnans Falls in the Styx Valley has been on my radar for a long while now, and I finally made the time to go find it last weekend. It is right beside the Big Tree reserve/walk, around 200 metres past the main visitor area. If you look closely on the right hand side of the...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

Marriotts Falls

I first visited Marriotts Falls a very long time ago – perhaps 10 years or longer – and was quite captivated by the spot. Myrtles, sassafras and tree ferns framed the graceful waterfall very nicely, but I didn’t feel I had a “great” shot of it yet. I have been back a couple of times,...Read More

Chasm Falls

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,...Read More

Myrtle Forest Falls near Collinsvale

Myrtle Forest Falls is near Collinsvale, around 30 mins from Hobart. It is a fall I have been meaning to get to for quite a long time, and took the opportunity a few weeks ago as there had been plenty of rain and it was a nice overcast day – great for visiting waterfalls 🙂...Read More

Harridge Falls

Harridge Falls is in north east Tasmania and starts from an unmarked location on the A3 highway near Weldborough. When we visited earlier this year the falls were basically in flood so there weren’t a great deal of options composition-wise. I certainly wasn’t going to step out into this torrent! It looks like a great...Read More

Nelson Falls

I have written about Nelson Falls a few times, as it really is one of Tasmania’s best waterfalls. Surrounded by lush green forest the falls are a very short walk from the Lyell Highway between Lake St Clair and Queenstown so a great place to stop on any trip to western Tasmania. Nelson Falls have...Read More

Lovers Falls, Tarkine

Lovers Falls is one of the highlights of a trip to Corinna. Made even more special due to its seclusion, it is only accessible by kayak, or chartering a small boat from Corinna meaning you aren’t likely to encounter hordes of tourists at any given time. The path in to the falls is very high...Read More

Hogarth Falls in Strahan

Hogarth Falls is a very easy short walk through the Peoples Park in Strahan on Tasmania’s west coast. The track is flat and wide and an easy stroll for people of all fitness levels. I visited a few weeks ago and water levels were fairly low which allowed a little bit of rock hopping for...Read More

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...Read More
