Dawson falls is a good place to visit on the way though Wells Grey National Park up toHelmcken falls. The fall is only 30 m high but you come very close, within a few meters, to the water and can therefore really feel the water...More

We visited Dawson falls after Helmcken falls. Totally different. Helmcken is steeo, Dawson very wide like a little Niagara fall. You can see a beatiful rainbow in the water. Impressive.

The Falls are a five minute walk from the parking lot, altho the trail itself is pretty good, it does have some ups and downs and the occasional tree root sticking up. The Falls are really well worth the short trek, and the first thing...More

This large wide waterfall is like a mini Niagara. You can take a short hike to the brink of the falls, where the power of the falling water is right next you (you're behind the safety fence thankfully). Amazing.

It's worth the short walk to see it. Massive amount of water rushing across the entire width of the river. Pretty awesome to be so close to these magnificent waterfalls. Take bug spray as will be case all throughout Wells Gray.
