Most people just drive the Stuart Hwy without event looking out the window or leaving their air conditioned car. They don’t see the strange and colorful landscapes around them, they just try to get to the next town as fast as they can. How can anyone do that when the journey is so amazing? Yes the landscape can be monotonous and sometimes even boring, but the size of it makes it exceptional. And you can’t argue against a few stops along the way just to wander around and get a glimpse of the remote places you are getting through.

The Montezuma Falls are one of the highest waterfalls in Tasmania at 104 meters. And it shows. The day we came there, it was practically impossible to see them.

In summary, it was a classic tassie experience, and an awesome one. Access Trail head: in Williamsford, a ghost mining town 41 49 47 S 145 30 9 E.
