Tarpean View

ABOUT: A lovely small railed lookout with a majestic view down towards Bridal Veil falls and the deep gully around it. Obviously best when the water is strong and flowing plus early morning and late afternoon it is in shade so careful exposures required. Fantastic also for birdlife which fly below you in the morning hours.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: Because of the dynamic range a tripod required to do multiple exposures if you want to capture the shade and lit parts of the valley. Ultra wide lenses are best because of the restricted view but long telephotos to capture birds or close-ups of the falls.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: The google point is at Solitary restaurant but you can park around the next loop towards cascades where the lookout is signposted. It is then a short 5-10 min walk.
