Montezuma Falls

 We decided to see Tasmania's highest waterfall, Montezuma Falls, just out of Zeehan on the West Coast. The falls are 140 metres tall and there is a 4wdrive track of 19 kms to reach them. According to the guide book it should take 1 hour each way.
   We checked with the local police to see how hard they would be for us with our camper. The policeman assured us that it would be no problem.
   Well it took us 2 and 1/2 hours to go up and there were some challenging corners which tripped the car on very acute angles and I had to guide DH where to place his wheels on the worse parts.

 They were worth the effort but the trip took so long that we needed to stay up there for the night. We didn't sleep very well, anticipating the difficulties for the return journey. Luckily we seemed to have less trouble on the return trip and it only took 2 hours. We were very happy not to sustain any damage to our vehicle and camper.

We probably wouldn't go there again though as there was one part of the track where we feared a roll over. We'll be on more main roads for the next part of the trip, luckily.
Hugs, Jan Mac

Wow, what an adventure. We were thinking of a Taz trip next August.
