Nelson Falls Soundscape

Nelson Falls in Western Tasmania is in an old growth rainforest.

The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service website says, “These delightful falls are reached after a very easy walk. Break the long drive and stretch your legs; you won’t be disappointed.”

This is exactly what happened for me. We had spent a couple of days driving through drizzle and fog on hairpin turn roads. It was nice to get out of the rental car and hike.

After some significant rainfall the falls are engorged and the stream is bubbling with life.

Seven different types of ferns are present. This one is HUGE.
