  • 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 »

  • This is one of the best places to go to in NSW. There is a way to go down to the base of the waterfall (I won't write the steps here, but you can google it). Just a few tips though: - Do it at your own risk - Bring water and some snacks - The trip down is around 30 minutes (and 30 minutes up as well) - Make sure you wear shoes with steady grips! - Don't travel alone if possible - Avoid travelling when it rains during the last couple days there as the path will be slippery and extremely dangerous - Phone signals won't be available the moment you hike down Recently, more and more people have discovered this place, and as such, there are some rubbish here and there, which is really disappointing. So please don't litter, and maybe pick up a couple rubbish while you're there. Help preserve this beautiful place for future generations to enjoy.
  • 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.
  • Magnificent big fall, however the track to go down is closed, if you wanna explore the beauty, you need to take your own risk and jump over the fence, wonderful landscape and rain forest is breath taking
  • Gorgeous and very peaceful..Great place to relax listening to the birds, have picnic or just contemplate beauty of the nature and its Creator.
