Protestor Falls, Nightcap National Park Northern NSW


I have to say northern New South Wales has such a diverse landscape. From the picturesque Protestor falls-nightcap-national-park2sea to rural paddocks and rainforests, we have it all.

On Sunday we went on an adventure to Protestor falls, so named from protests in that area in the late 1970s because of logging. I knew the falls were a quite long vertical drop but what I didn’t count on was the gorgeous lush moss strewn rocks and logs in the rainforest and the water from the falls cascading in small waterfalls along the length of the creek.

Terania-creek-protestor-fallsIt was only a short walk up from the car park, a little slippery in spots but pretty good really. After a short hike up you come to the bottom of the falls. Although I thought the falls were impressive it was on the walk back down with tripod attached that I kept stopping to take photos of the smaller waterfalls and the rocks that caught my eye. Definitely a must see and we were so pleased we went there.

  2. Stunning photographs, Kaz. Did you use a ND filter and tripod to create the milky water effect of the falls? They are really fabulous. Smiles. Reinhold
