There are two viewing points for these falls. One is about a 5 minute walk in, the other about 15 minutes. If you take the longer walk, you'll be about as close to the power of nature as you will ever get!

It had been raining when we went on our visit and the torrent of blue/green water was spectacular across a wide horseshoe style fall. Totally different to the other main falls we visited. A short walk on a woodland trail with a good viewing platform....More

We visited most of the falls whilst staying at the Clearwater springs ranch and thought this one to be the best.it is a very short walk from the car park and accessible for most ages.

This is a beautiful waterfall, especially if you get closer to see it from the bottom of the falls. It is within the area of lovely Egmont National Park.

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
