It’s the afternoon of Day 6 of our Tassie trip. After spending most of the day exploring the Bay of Fires (here and here), we were now on our way to Launceston, but had decided we had enough time to drop in at St Columba Falls for a walk and to enjoy some beautiful rainforest and the cascading waters of the South George River, on the way! After a brief interlude where we pulled off the road and indulged my need to photograph some lovely looking cows, we continued on our way and finally arrived.
I’m so glad we decided to visit because it certainly didn’t disappoint. It was stunning there!
St Columba Falls is about 25 km’s west of St Helens on Tasmania’s east coast. In case you ever plan to visit, I can report that there are toilets (not flush toilets) and picnic facilities there. The walk is not far – around 600m each way. Walking down to the falls is easy but it requires a little more effort for the uphill walk back up to the carpark. The walking track is really sturdy and good!
I hope you enjoy these photographs. The falls themselves were difficult to photograph because as you looked up at them, you were looking into very bright light (as you will see – particularly with the first photograph of the two of the falls)!
The next Tassie Trip post will feature photographs from Launceston!
