Killen Falls

New South Wales

A short walk to viewing platform and then down to the bottom of the falls. Great for a swim, although the pool bottom is very rocky and slippery (wear shoes).

Quick boardwalk/sealed track walk to the lookout only, today - very pretty creek and quite a lot of water going over the falls. Was short on time so the longer walk will have to wait. Worth combing this short walk with a trip to Newrybar - about 15m drive.

Short walk more or less just for a dip. Very busy very worn track.

A very easy walk to the viewing platform and the down to the base of the falls. The falls and waterhole are like a postcard. One of the nicer falls that we have been to, but I imagine that it is very busy in the warmer months. I highly recommend this one.
