Snug Falls

Snug Falls is a beautiful high waterfall on Snug River in Tasmania’s south.  It’s a 2.1km walk to the falls, about a half hour walk one way.  We haven’t had too much rain lately so the waterfall was subdued but still beautiful, peaceful and a nice escape from the heat of the day.

While my friend, Rachel, cooled her feet in the water and was gazing upwards at the waterfall, I did a 2 minute line drawing of her.

On our way back to the car we stopped to pick and eat some Native Cherries, which are ripe at this time of year.  They’re a little woody in texture but really tasty.  Its botanical name is Exocarpos cupressiformis.  It has no relation to the European cherry and its fruit is actually swollen red stalk.  It is a parasite on the roots of other trees and therefore very difficult to transplant.
