Our October trip to Tasmania this year was sensational. We visited so many natural wonders including waterfalls, rainforests, pristine beaches, dirt tracks, camping areas and much, much more. On our last day we were so happy to discover the amazing Mount Paris Dam in Branxholm. The remnants of a dam built in 1935/36, it was built for the Mt Paris Tin Mining Company, but was originally called the Morning Star Dam. It was built by hand with workers dealing with the tons of concrete with wheelbarrows and shovels. The dam is now on the Tasmanian Heritage Register. Visitors can find their way there by car via a dirt road and then an easy 5 minute walk. Board formed concrete walls are making a comeback of late with the wood leaving an indelible mark on the finished, hard concrete. This dam used this technique well before it became trendy. It’s awe-inspiring to see the cold, hard concrete walls against the natural green colours of the surrounding forest land. If you’re visiting anytime soon, make sure you add this adventure to your Tasmanian trip. You can see our other shot from the same location HERE.
