Quaille Falls, Tasmania.

Nikon D800 / Zeiss 21mm
ISO 100 • f/22 • 1.6sec • 21mm • -0.3ev

There was only one thing that I was a bit disappointed about after Fagus Week last year… the fact that I never had the chance to see Quaille Falls. It’s outside Cradle Mountain National Park, so I knew it wasn’t a destination for Fagus Week, but I saw photos that others had taken and I sort of had my heart set on photographing it. I’m pretty sure Tinnie knew that, so when I arrived a bit early for Fagus Week this year, Tinnie offered to take me there. It was every bit as wonderful as I’d imagined.

It’s not the kind of waterfall that you can take a group to though – it’s very steep and very slippery… so I have to say a really big thank you to Tinnie for taking the time out to go there with me. And I know that Claire would’ve loved to have been there too but couldn’t… so here’s hoping your back gets fixed really soon, Claire!!!

Anyone considering Fagus Week for next year should consider spending a day or so either before or afterwards checking out the places just outside Cradle Mountain National Park… those Tasmanians are so lucky – everything’s so close by!!

I’m just an Aussie girl who’s a bit mad about photography :)

    “Vivid” was the word that first popped into my head when that image appeared on screen. It’s almost too good to be true – like a Disney fantasy. You’ve done it again, Mieke.

  • So many Tassie places have that “enchanted forest” look about them, that’s for sure. You almost expect to see fairies and pixies and all manner of storybook characters come peeping out from behind the trees! Very different to the Kimberley…
    Thanks heaps, Gary!

    Superb balance and comp Mieke…never visited these falls..maybe next year.

  • It’s very beautiful. It was a very steep, slippery walk down, but once you cross the river and look up, you can’t help saying “Wow…..”
    Thanks so much for all your comments, Mark!!!
