  • Fantastic Bushwalks, great views. Paths can be pretty busy, but they are easier than the footpath at Scenic World, although the further you go, the harder it does get. There are A LOT of stairs on the...  more »

  • We visited the falls just after a heavy rainstorm and took some fabulous photos. It's only about a 30 minute fairly easy walk from the car park to the main falls which are awesome. Can definitely reco...  more »

  • Very nice waterfall. We only went to two of the lookout points but there were heaps if walks from easy to difficult. We went on the easy walk and it was not very easy! Heaps of steps but good exercise.
  • Great bushwalks with spectacular views. There's a range of different walks around the Falls, all ranging for a different difficulty. There is long walks with the main walk taking about 2 hours if you're taking it slowly.
  • Great place for entertaining our two international visitors. There is less crowd here than three sisters and yet still the same spectacular view. We enjoyed one of the many picnic tables to spread out a morning tea.
  • Fantastic waterfalls that's easily accessible. You can get very close to it and enjoy the cooling waterfall spray. It gets crowded during weekends though.
  • A short drive or a train journey from Sydney. Can rest in picnic area of go out on walks that suits your abilities. Views of the falls are nice when there's enough water flowing.
