IN MY BACKPACK

I did not take a back pack for this walk, as it was only short. You could take a nice picnic down to the falls if you wanted, and sit on the rocks.

THE WALK

This walk was very easy, however it did include a few flights of stairs. The walk down to the water fall is all flat and down hill. The track is very well kept.

Soon after starting, down the stairs, there is a small look out that you can go down to look over the top of the water fall.

Carrying on down the track, down one last set of stairs you come out to the bottom of the water fall, which is very pretty! The water is extremely blue.

We then headed back to the car, via the same track.

This is a great walk, short and quick there and back. If you are travelling in the National Park, I would say this is great opportunity to get out of the car, stretch your legs and see a beautiful waterfall.
