  • Nice spot and lookouts, however it is so disappointing that they closed the walk to the bottom and middle pool! Just another example of softening up Australian tourism! Everything is controlled by boa...  more »

  • Update: there's a hidden track to the falls! Find the chicken wire fence with a sign that says Danger, cliff edge ahead. Jump over that and enjoy! Be careful as it's not a maintained track. Small little walk with a great view. Nice and quiet spot to lunch at as well - bring your own food. Fitzroy Falls lookout is about 15 minutes drive from here, so you can visit both in a day!
  • Nice secluded double falls. Not very touristy and with little signage for the more adventurous. Jump over the correct fence and you can find this secret track to the middle pool between falls. Jump over the wrong one and the track will lead you to a cliff face (where we ended up). Still, it was fun hike with the sound of water in the distance. The top of the falls is also accessible if you drive further down the road. Just don't fall over!
  • Belmore is becoming increasingly popular. It isn't as 'managed' as Fitzroy Falls but for my money is far more attractive. It's a multi-level waterfall with many different lookouts so you can view it at all perspectives. There are several tracks to the base of the falls, but the one you need to use is at the Hindmarsh Lookout end, not (as I thought!) the second lookout.
  • Great spot for photography and a short walk for those who don't like long walks. You get an incredible view!!
  • This place is amazing! Underrated destination. Enjoyed it more than the popular Fitzroy Falls
