Forests & Waterfalls, Tasmania

This page shows a small selection of the relatively pristine forests, rivers and waterfalls which make Tasmania so appealing to nature lovers. Some forest is protected, but much of what remains faces the threat of being torn down and converted into woodchips ... which makes me appreciate even more the bits that haven't been spoiled.
