The top half of the Montezuma Falls, Tasmania’s highest waterfall, located near Rosebery on the state’s west coast. This had to be taken quickly from the viewing platform because of the heavy spray from the falls.

The track to the Falls begins at Williamsford, two kilometres south of Rosebery. This easy, three-hour return walk along a level track takes you right to the base of the 104 metre Falls through pleasant park-like rainforest including leatherwood, myrtle, sassafras and giant tree ferns.

The name Montezuma comes from the last Aztec emperor of Mexico (1466-1520). In Tasmania, his name appears to have originally been applied to the Montezuma Silver Mining Company, which was formed in 1891 and held leases on the northern slopes of Mt. Dundas.

This shot was taken with my Pentax k-r on 29 April 2012.
