Kondalilla Falls, Montville

4.5
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Montville
In terms of natural beauty, these waterfalls are unbeatable. Kondalilla Falls stands in the middle remnant subtropical rainforest, full of hoop pines, piccabeen palms, and eucalypt trees. William Skene discovered it by accident while searching for lost cattle. The falls got their name from the Aboriginal word for running water. Take a refreshing swim in two natural pools and dry off on the warm rocks. You can also hike in the rainforest hike but camping is not permitted.

  • Lovely spot but very busy on weekends. Nice easy paved path down to the swimming area. Rope swings on both sides for the adventurous  more »
  • We were there in the evening and had unfortunately not much time before it got dark. The way is good to deal with and not very long. The beautiful waterfalls, one can also take a bath. (above). It was enough to go, take a look from a distance on the great falls even on the other side. The Kondadilla National Park is a very rewarding destination, which you should give more time.

  • This is a great place to do for a short visit or a longer one. Great free parking and picnic tables, with free toilets nearby. There are a series of forest walks, leading to rock pools you can swim in, or a walk linking in to a longer 58km forest mountain range trail. There are a lot of steps on one stretch of the loop so best to wear decent footwear. The swim in the rock pools or under the larger waterfall is great and really refreshing if you do the 4.8km walk – a lot of down to get to the bottom of the falls, but you are rewarded with such a gorgeous view.
  • Great if you want to have a short or longer walk. The falls are gorgeous, you can take the circuit track and go right to the bottom of the falls and back up to the rock pools (perfect for a swim on a hot day) or just go to the pools. There's a picnic area just as you walk down to the tracks so you can make a bit of a day for it.
  • Absolutely beautiful spot to have a swim in the rock pool and/or dive off the jump rock from the waterfall into the clean cool water. Great place for all ages. It’s about 2km each way from the car park. There are good picnic facilities about 200 metres from the car park. The bbq’s are not gas, so take something to light the fire with. Awesome
  • One of the best swimming rock pools you can find. Amazing waterfall after a bit of rain. Shirt easy hike in from the car park makes this a must see.
  • Cool water even when the days are steaming hot. Perfect short hike for both kids, teenagers and adults.
