Hawkes Creek Swallet

Today we thought we would go and check out something that has been on the list for a while Hawkes Creek Swallet.  A swallet is where a waterway just disappears into the side of a hill and then re-appears somewhere up-stream, a great example of this is at Julius River.  So after loading the 'Slug'...

Waratah 4WD Trip – Godkin Mine

What was meant to be a 4WD trip around Waratah area turned into more a History sight-seeing adventure but It was just as good and incredibly interesting.  So after meeting up at Waratah on a beautiful sunny winters morning we where off and heading south for our first stop to check out the Godkin mine.  This walk starts at...

Mersey Valley

This Weekend with the weather looking rather horrible in the west we decided to head eastward to the Mersey Valley and try to escape it.  It wasn't looking to good to start with as it rained the whole way there, as we got closer though the clouds got lighter and the rain turned to showers and...

Julius River Waterfalls

Today was probably one of the more spectacular walks we have done in Tassie and it was pretty unorthodox as such as much of it was walking in a river. We started at the Julius River Reserve which is a nice spot but why it is where it is strange as downstream there are caves and... Continue Reading →
