Lobster Tale #13 – Waratah 

Tasmania’s first mining “rush” began in Waratah 1871 when James “Philosopher” Smith discovered tin on nearby Mt Bischoff. Today, sleepy Waratah belies its bustling past. Most visitors stop here to walk to Philosophers Falls on the upper reaches of the Arthur River 11 km from town. The Arthur River marks the southernmost extent of the range of the lobster.
