Even though this is a waterfalls website, we recognize that there are many highlights from our neighbors to the north in Canada (both involving and not involving waterfalls). So we’ve come up with this page to pay homage to some of the highlights that we…

Southeastern Australia Redux And Recovery Itinerary – November 8, 2017 to December 3, 2017

This was essentially a redo of a trip that took place back in November 2006, when it was adversely affected by some of Australia’s worst drought on record at the time.  This time around, Julie and I once again did this trip together alone…

Penny Royal Waterfall

The Penny Royal Waterfall really felt more like a mall and amusement park backdrop than a legitimate waterfall attraction. That said, the way the artificial falls was situated, it attractively…

Dip Falls

Dip Falls was a bit of an out-of-the-way excursion as it sat to the far northwest of Tasmania. For a waterfall that required quite the drive to reach, we wondered whether it would be worth the trouble

Waterfall Bay

Waterfall Bay typically referred to a body of water off the east coast of Tasmania on the rugged Tasman Peninsula. For the purposes of this page, I’m also using that term to refer to the 100m…

“Connecting The Dots” (Tasmania – November 24, 2017 to December 3, 2017)

…just when I was about to check the handheld GPS for reception and to see how close I was to the car park, I saw underneath the rain poncho that only the attached battery cover was in my hip pouch!

Straw Falls

Straw Falls was a slender but tall waterfall in a seasonal creek feeding the Erskine River. Since it was on such a thin-flowing creek, I’d imagine that seeing this waterfall flow would require…

Kalymna Falls

Kalymna Falls was one of those waterfalls that had eluded us over the years. The first time we attempted to come here in November 2006, there was a total fire ban so there was a gate blocking…

Clematis Falls

Clematis Falls was what I considered to be one of the “minor” waterfalls of the Grampians National Park. As opposed to the “major” waterfalls in the park which would have pretty reliable flow…

Beehive Falls

Beehive Falls was another one of the “minor” waterfalls within the Grampians National Park boundary where I happened to see it in two different personalities within a 24 hour period. Like with…

“Yanada” (South Australia and Victoria – November 8, 2017 to November 23, 2017)

Just when Julie was about to get into the car after using the restrooms here, she smelled something burning. At first, I thought it was something with the car. But she said it was more like a fire…

Summer Road Trip of the Pacific Northwest – July 27, 2017 to August 20, 2017

With Summer in full swing and a daughter that was growing and learning quickly (though out-of-school for nearly three months), we figured that we needed to do a road trip to experience the world in ways that are simply not possible…

Tamanawas Falls

Tamanawas Falls was one of the more pleasing waterfalls to see as it featured a classic rectangular shape said to drop 100ft with a width of about 40ft (though I’ve seen a height figure…

Munson Creek Falls

Munson Creek Falls was probably most significant waterfall in the vicinity of the Oregon Coast that we’ve encountered. Tumbling over three visible tiers, it was said to have a cumulative…

Upper McCord Creek Falls

The Upper McCord Creek Falls was an attractive double-barreled waterfall said to have a height of about 64ft. As you can see from the photo at the top of this page, I happened to see this falls…

“Total Eclipse Of The Trip” (Portland and the Oregon Coast – August 16, 2017 to August 20, 2017)

It was a bit of a strange experience being on this bridge looking at the sign periodically go dark then the letters outlining in green before sparkling in the font while cars were whizzing by…
