There is a lovely walk close to Strahan, Tasmania up to Hogarth Falls and is one of Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks. You access the path to the falls via People’s Park just on the east side of Strahan. The 2.5km return walk through the beautiful forest is really beautiful with many outstanding gum trees and tree ferns along the way.
The walk was very straightforward and easy to follow with interpretive signs throughout to keep us informed and educated about the area. There were quite a few signs where kids from the Strahan Primary School lent drawings and descriptions to provide a little bit of a child’s raw perspective of the rainforest scenery here. Throughout the mostly flat walk, we were flanked by some impressively tall gum trees as well as ferns, which suggested that this was a pretty high rainfall area. Botanical Creek was practically always alongside the track, and where we could get a good look at the stream, we noticed that familiar maroon-coloured tannin stain in the water that we had seen in some other Tasmanian streams.
The tree ferns develop a new frond every two years so by counting the fronds, including all the older dead brown ones, you can tell the age of these tree ferns. Some of them are over a hundred years old!
The track climbed noticeably but briefly towards the end. Once there (just before an overgrown lookout with railings), we descended some steps leading to a bench between the upper and lower tiers of Hogarth Falls.
