Walls of Jerusalem: Little Fisher River
The Little Fisher River is a part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, in the northern part of the Walls of Jerusalem National Park.
This selection of photos is “From the Vault”, taken many years ago on my first visit to the area. The rainforest along the easy river walk was sublime. Basically myrtle rainforest, with a lot of pandani present in certain areas, it was a joy to photograph.
Accessing the Little Fisher River
This section of the Walls of Jerusalem National Park is accessed by a side road from the main C171 road at Lake Rowallan. It is a bumpy old logging road but well passable in a regular non 4WD. There are some useful driving notes here.
The Little Fisher River, as well as being a destination in its own right is also an alternative access to the main Walls of Jerusalem plateau, popping up in the vicinity of Turanna Bluff and the Daisy Lakes.
The highlight of the trip photographically was this magic morning light on the river waters. A lovely red glow on the dark tannin stained waters, deep in the magical forest was quite an experience.
I am planning to revisit shortly, this time to photograph the beautiful Rinadeena Falls. There is an unfortunate and sorry story about why I didn’t photograph the falls on the last visit, but I’ll tell you all about that another time…
