  • No one can argue that Ellenborough Falls isn't worth the visit. It's spectacular especially at the moment after recent rain. You can view it from up the top or you can walk 500 metres to the bottom fo...  more »
  • It is so peaceful and such a beautiful site. The walk down is long but you expected that when you are walking to the bottom of a waterfall.  more »
  • Fantastic waterfall great when there's been run little tracks to walk dwn has a great swimming area down a dirt track and a little tucker shop with food no eftpos though.
  • The second largest water fall in the Southern Hemisphere. Absolutely beautiful, beware 641 steps down the mountain and a hell 641 steps back up, but I'm not the fittest person in the world but I did it an amazing feeling at the end, as well as exhaustion. The drive to Eden to mountain is mostly gravel dirt and very narrow in places, so care is needed but not too bad, the view is worth it, if your not driving as your eyes need to be on the road. Enjoy
  • Breathtaking waterfall. Definitely worth the visit. 10 km of dirt track that is accessible for all vehicles (may have trouble after heavy rain for small vehicles). Spotted a few baby kangaroos on the way up
  • Spiritual. Natural beauty. Longest drop from top to bottom of water in the southern hemisphere.
  • Definitely worth a visit. The drive involves dirt roads but are not as treacherous as some mention - drive sensibly! When you're there, read the signs to learn about the place.
