“Well worth the side trip”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

The 14Klm side trip down a good quality gravel road is well worth what is at the end - The multiple cascades are spectacular and there is some rock pools suitable for swimming - The track to the lookout is sealed and an easy grade for walking - The view down over the valley is worth the walk in itself - In wet weather the falls would be really magnificent

“Beautiful swimming hole”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Come int the summer and have a great swim. If you're lucky enough and its been raining, the waterfall will be running. You can also have a BBQ with the facilities here. Great area.

“Worth spending some time here.”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

We arrived at Boonoo Boonoo Falls late in the afternoon, and didn't have enough time to fully appreciate the area. The wlak around the falls is easy, and the views are great. Next time, we'll allow the best part of a day to take in all the walks and sights, and to have a swim at the base of the falls.

“Wow, nearly didn't visit”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

The falls are absolutely beautiful. The facilities provided by National Parks are great for family picnic's. After visiting Bald Rock, we nearly didn't visit on our way home because of the detour off the main road. We would have been kicking ourselves! It's a must if you're visiting Bald Rock.
