Arve Falls

Hartz Mountains National Park

Directions - Located just over an hour from Hobart, take the Huon Hwy south until you reach Geeveston and turn right onto Arve Rd. Follow the signs towards Tahune until you reach the turnoff for Hartz Rd. Take this road all the way to the car park for Arve Falls (located a short distance before the car park for Hartz Peak).

The Hike - With a lovely trip to Mount Misery in the morning my next destination was the Hartz Mountains National Park for a couple of hikes to complete what was shaping up to be a fantastic day of hiking. Before heading to the main hike up to Lake Esperance and Hartz Peak I wanted to check out the smaller trail leading down to Arve Falls. With a couple of nice waterfalls already under my belt in Snug Falls and Pelverata Falls, I was keen to check out another and whip out the tripod and filters for some long exposure shots. The issue I was having at Mount Misery with the sun being too bright (first world problems) would follow me here so I wasn't entirely hopeful of getting any decent shots on this hike but was happy to explore the trail.
