Waratah Lookout.

We were driving from Bruny Island to Hobart, which wasn’t far, so we went a bit out of out way to a couple of interesting locations.  One of these was Hartz Mountains National Park.  We only skimmed the surface here.  For one thing we didn’t have a lot of time and for another, the weather was a bit too damp to go for a long walk.

We must have visited Keogh’s Falls, which is close to the road, but evidently I didn’t consider it worthy of a photograph.  This on the approaches to Arve Falls.

From Arve Falls we drove on to the end of the road and then undertook the short walk to Lake Osborne.  This is a long-ranging view when starting out.  We are back in the Tasmanian Wilderness Area.
