I was only in Launceston, Tasmania for one night, and didn’t think I would get time to visit Cataract Gorge, which would have been a shame as the place is amazing!
I forgot about daylight savings (which we don’t have in Queensland). That combined with the latitude of Tasmania meant it wasn’t getting dark until around 9pm. That’s a big difference when you’re used to night setting in at 7pm in Queensland.
This photo was taken at the lower end of the gorge, fairly close to the city where the South Esk river flows into the Tamar river (or maybe the other way round, not sure).
Doesn’t it look lovely and serene? What you can’t tell from the photo is that those little shits in the bottom right had an old-school ghetto-blaster with them blasting out gangster rap music.
I’ll post another photo later showing what I found when I got to the north-side of the gorge.
