Not Apsley Gorge, this river is less dramatic. Well, the bit I visited is anyway.
Right half of the state though.

The other one it reminds me of is the top of Harding Falls. Beyond that, I have nothing.

A fair distance north west of there. No falls on this that I know of apart from this little cascade.

Too far west eggs. I'm in the eastern half of the state but a fair way north.

Much closer but still a little too far west. I'm at the end of a very short walk of historical interest.

Yes too far east Tortoise. Holwell wasn't too far away.
This is very close to civilisation.

Yeah near enough... but I obviously don't walk through there very often as I did not recognise it. Only got it via your clues and responses to other guesses.

That's it eggs. It was quite a frosty late afternoon at Lake Meston. Got down to -8.5 at Liawenee that night, so would have been a similar temperature where we camped at the ususal northern end camp site.

With thanks to the excellent Waterfalls of Tasmania site I think this could be Timbs/Lonnavale Falls.
Neither are official names I believe.

This is indeed the unofficially named Lonnavale Falls. There was also a sign there that said "Paul's Falls" - the Nomenclature board needs to make a decision haha.
