What a lovely, peaceful and tranquil place to stumble across after a long and tiring hike. It's refreshing to swim here on a hot summer's day. After a little rest, continue walking the track through some very scenic bush/forest all the way down to the stone store (takes about 45 minutes relatively easy walking from the Falls).

We made the effort to go to the falls and were well rewarded. The sun was shining and there is actually a rainbow over the pool at the base of the waterfall. Some good walks along the trail from the falls.

Great Walk. Not sure what is better: the walk there or the falls at the end. We took the long walk (starting at the Stone House) and are glad we did. Would have done it the next day if our itinery allowed.

We were passing the turnoff to the falls so stopped in for a look. It's a very short walk from the car park & there are three different views. First one is the view looking at the falls - even though it was very dry when we were there, there was still water flowing over ... & we even spotted a rainbow as we looked. Next view is where the water actually drops over & the third is a little bit further up. Very peaceful & a beautiful area.
