QUALIE'S FALLS

Cradle Mt - Lake St Clair National Park

Just a short distance from the "Post Office" tree corner on the Cradle Mt link road is this easy to miss sign.  We headed off not knowing what to expect.  Information on the falls is difficult to find.  The track starts 2 kilometres from the main road along a gravel road.  The track is well signposted.  The road in passes some very bleak almost unattractive terrain.  A very pleasant surprise awaits the adventurous.

The lower falls of the three tiers.

The signs suggest 90 minutes return.  Two hours were needed.

LEFT: The full view of the falls.  RIGHT: The view from near the top of the falls overlooking a perfect example of the Tasmanian rainforest wilderness.

 

More to come from this very surprising and beautiful walk.  Just near the start of the track is a diversion through another myrtle forest.  The only information I was able to find on these walks was that logging operations occur in the hills above the forest above.  A little hard to believe this area lies outside the national park.
