Snug Falls Nature Reserve
Directions - Pelverata Falls is located 40 minutes from Hobart, taking Huon Highway south and following this to the Sandfly Road turnoff. Take the left turn and then an immediate right onto Pelverata Road. Continue along this narrow road for 13kms then take a left onto Crosswells Road (signposted). The car park is a small clearing near the blue wooden sign.
The Hike - With our time in Hobart coming to an end, I had decided to stay in Tasmania an extra week to explore the countryside while Caris flew home to Fremantle. With so many great hikes and places to visit I thought it was best to base myself in a couple of areas and focus on what was nearby rather than trying to see everything and waste a lot of time driving everywhere. With a couple of areas selected I had two rustic looking AirBnB's booked and a rough plan of what hikes I wanted to do in each area. After a morning spent at the markets in Hobart and wandering around the shops I was dropped off at the airport to pick up my hire car. I had booked an X-Trail hoping to drive the new model and see what its like compared to my much older one but disappointingly I was stuck with a Mitsubishi Outlander.
