Fabulous walk

Wonderful views and worthwhile experience. But the walk is tricky and tough in parts. You need to be fit.

The views are incredible. Lots of hiking options for people of all abilities. Spent a total of five hours hiking and went through a wide range of environments.

Beautiful view, was empty when we got there which was great. We hiked down to the falls off to your right. About one hour round trip down to bottom of falls. Well worth the hour, though it's quite steep.

The scenery was breathtaking. Our children loved seeing the waterfall. There were scenic walks to do and an information centre worth looking at.

We visited the look out and took the short walk towards the top of waterfall (barrow lookout)The walk it self was a little strenuous but was easy enough for a four year old to navigate without being carried.

A great quick stop to access stunning Blue Mountains views. Not very adventurous if you would like a long walk.
