  • I visited these falls on a day trip from Sydney. Very easy to access from Bowral or Mittagong with nice winding country roads. Car access to the lookout is ok, with a short stretch of unsealed road at...  more »

  • Amazing beautiful tracks. It's in a very peaceful quiet and nature filled location. Some of the hikes you can do are a bit tricky and dangerous but very worth it. Very untouched by humans, this area is very natural and an awesome getaway. Definitely find your way to the waterfall and the fresh water pool if you're brave enough and at your own risk. It is quite a dangerous hike. It isn't too difficult but there are no fences and trees and rocks fall down daily blocking the path so it is not advised. But soooo worth it.
  • For those game enough to try their hand at a tricky little walk, and 'brave' enough to ignore signs and potential fines, Belmore Falls up close does not disappoint!! Crossing over a fence between the two lookouts sees a 30min (approx) walk down to the waterfall begin - through beautiful wet forest scenery and the odd muddy step or fallen log. The walk itself is special, being so 'in the thick of it'. Then the falls open up and you soon realize you'll want to spend many hours here. Above you is the fairly big waterfall, filling up a large (but cold) pool; below you is another drop that carries the water into Barrengarry Creek. Bring friends, bring togs, bring lunch, bring a camera.
  • 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 board walks and fences and you are not allowed to do anything adventurous. If you want some adventure, go to Northern Australia. Seems like NSW has lost it! People on here really shouldn't publicly review the bottom walk, as it is an illegal and unmaintained walk. By encouraging others to do it, you are placing them in serious danger. You don't know what their capabilities are plus they could be fined if they get busted. Do it at your own discretion if you need to, but don't post it publicly!
  • Nice little hike to get to the middle waterfall (closed off- go at own risk) and 100% worth it! Amazing views.. Bring your own lunch and eat on the picnic tables, no bins that I could see and only one public toilet.
  • One of the best waterfall in New South Wales. However, they have closed the trail so you can only view the waterfall from the lookout point above. Plenty of people jumping the fence to get to the unmaintained trail. This trail is not recommended for kids or beginner hikers since lots of fallen tree and slippery gravel.
