Halls Falls

On the drive home from St. Helens along the A3, we came across a turnoff for Halls Falls.  This area was the heart of the tin mining industry until the 1940s.  Northeast Tasmania is also an important logging area.

The hike to the falls wandered through temperate rainforest.  It was a nice hike, and seemed to be lightly used.  There were several sites to view the multi-tiered falls including a lookout, rock pools above the falls, and at the base of the falls.  The hike was relatively short, but steep and muddy in places.
