  • Visited this fall as we were driving along the forgotten world highway (SH 43). It is quite remote and out of the way, but worth the visit. It's a short 20min walk to the waterfall. It hadn't rained when we went so there was not so much water, but still a nice view:)
  • A great waterfall with some really cool rapids before the edge. The track is easy and the river has some big eels in it. Only problem is you can't get to the bottom of the falls. Only viewable from the top.
  • A beautiful hours drive from State Highway 3, followed by a lovely 10 minute walk, which leads to the amazing Mt Damper falls. The falls are over 70m high, so they are quite grand to behold.
  • Nice big waterfall!
  • A short walk to high waterfall. Could be try at the end of a hot summer!
